OLYMPIA — The baby Jesus was stolen from a Nativity scene outside the state Capitol in Olympia.

The scene had been on display less than 24 hours when the man responsible for the display discovered Sunday morning that the Jesus figurine was missing from the manger.

Ron Wesselius told KOMO that it's sad someone would take it before others could enjoy it.

Wesselius has been displaying the Nativity scene every Christmas for about seven years.
