BROOKLYN - A Jesus statue was stolen outside a Williamsburg church late Saturday night.
This is not the first time a statue has been stolen from the church. In 2012, a similar statue was stolen.
The church has released surveillance video of the suspects stealing the statue.
The video shows two men and one woman stealing the Jesus statue from its pedestal. Another camera captured the three suspects running away with the statue just seconds later.
The Diocese of Brooklyn tells News 12 that the statue was donated to the church by a couple in New Jersey after the original one was stolen four years ago.
Officials at the Saints Peter and Paul Church say they have filed a police report for the missing statue, but they are asking for the public’s help to identify the three suspects involved.
