Local authorities in Puerto Rico reported this week that a statue of the baby Jesus and a crucifix were found tied together and burned after being removed from a chapel in the town of Isabela.

Police chief Juan Arce explained the thieves entered the chapel through a window and burned the crucifix, and later they removed a statue of the baby Jesus that was part of a Nativity scene.

Arce also said the numbers 666 were painted on one of the walls of the chapel as well as some obscene words in English.  He did not mention any suspects in the vandalism or any cost of the damage to the chapel.
