Security firm's program 'Saving Jesus'

Dec. 24, 2012 at 2:18 PM

NEW YORK, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- A New York firm said its Saving Jesus program is dedicated to using GPS to prevent and solve thefts of baby Jesuses from nativity scenes.

Todd Morris, chief executive of BrickHouse Security, said he started the program seven years ago after hearing of how often baby Jesus figurines are stolen from outdoor nativity scenes, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

Morris said the company implants GPS devices in the figurines and publicizes the security measure to deter thieves.

Marc Horowitz, the company's editorial director, said none of the hundreds of figurines under the company's protection has been stolen.

"If you're out and you've had a couple of drinks and you're looking to pull a prank, this would not be a good idea," Horowitz said.
