Callous thieves stole a ‘life-sized’ baby Jesus doll from a Tayside church.
The doll, from a nativity scene outside St John’s Kirk in Perth, was reported stolen late-last night (Monday December 5).
Police say they are looking to trace three young boys who were seen acting suspiciously in the area at the time.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: “We are appealing for information after a life-sized baby Jesus doll was taken from a nativity display outside St John’s Kirk, St John’s Place, Perth.
“Three young boys were seen acting suspiciously in the area at the time and were last seen near St John Street, Perth.
