One Jesus apparently wasn't enough for thieves who swiped four from Cape Girardeau County Park Holiday of Lights displays, police reported Tuesday.

The county parks superintendent made a report to the Cape Girardeau Police Department on Tuesday that four Jesus figures had been stolen from various displays that adorned the park during the holiday season, said department spokesman Jason Selzer. The figures belonged to the Knights of Columbus Hall, the Monticello House in Jackson, Simply Swirled and Southside Baptist Church.

Selzer said they weren't sure when they were taken. Police had no suspects.
