Grinch steals Christmas cross

Not even a cross is safe from thieves.

KSHB Channel 41 reports that someone stole the 5-foot-tall cross from Bob Mercer's yard in Liberty (pictured in the screen shot on the right). Mercer's sons helped him make the cross, and they've displayed it for more than 20 years. Until now.

Mercer told KSHB:

"I just hope the people who took it noted its weight, its coarseness and think about the price our savior paid."

I'm going to say check, check and, uh, no. But maybe a Christmas miracle will bring the lost cross home.
