N.S. Mounties find Jesus

MIDDLE STEWIACKE, N.S. – Jesus has been found – and Rees Rockey couldn’t be happier.

Thieves stole the metre-high concrete statue of Jesus from the grave of Rockey’ brother’s nearly two weeks ago. But when the local RCMP issued a news release on the theft, the stolen statue miraculously turned up this week on a back road in Upper Stewiacke, near Truro.

Const. Brad Wood, of Colchester County RCMP, said a passerby spotted the statue about five minutes after hearing a radio news report on the theft.

The stature wasn’t damaged, he said. “It appears someone had a guilty conscience and brought it back.”

“I was really surprised,” Rockey said. “I didn’t think we would get it back.”

The one-of-a-kind statue, made in Prince Edward Island, has been in a dome at the gravesite of Jim Rees for seven years.

“They must have had a little change of heart,” said Rockey. “I think it’s very nice of them to do that, really.”

Wood said they have no leads on the thieves and the police investigation has ended [source link].
