Grinches steal more than one baby Jesus

Brandon Gaw, 18, of Macon, Mo.

Investigators have solved the case of the stolen baby Jesuses taken from nativity scenes in Macon County.

The thefts were reported last weekend.

The Jesus dolls and other Christmas decorations were taken from several homes and churches in Bevier and from at least one in Macon.

On Tuesday, all the items were recovered, and the Macon County Sheriff's Office has returned them to their owners.

Arrested were Brandon Gaw, 18, of Macon, Hilary Voss, 17, of Bevier and a juvenile suspect.

They are charged with six counts of theft/stealing under $500, a Class A misdemeanor.

The Bevier City Marshal also helped with the investigation.
