bt-nativity122412-10Here’s some very clever marketing to the Christian community: one company is offering free GPS trackers for the baby Jesus figures that pranksters love to steal from nativity scenes:

A security company is offering free GPS devices to churches to help prevent their baby Jesus figurines being stolen from Nativity scenes.

Brickhouse Security is giving the GPS trackers to qualifying churches to hide on or in their Jesus figurines.

If baby Jesus is snatched by a sticky-fingered heathen, the matchbox-sized device will alert the owner to the theft.

‘We monitor it from our cloud-based mapping system, and set up alerts so that they’ll get a text message or an e-mail if Baby Jesus is in motion,’ said Todd Morris, CEO of Brickhouse Securities.

Brickhouse Security can then pinpoint Jesus’ location whereupon law enforcement can undertake a rescue operation.
