NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A bronze statue of Jesus Christ that hung on a cross outside a Virginia church has been recovered, minus one arm, after being stolen.

Tony Calcagni is the owner of Gutterman Iron and Metal Corp. He tells The Virginia-Pilot (https://bit.ly/2qhfqWG ) that two men arrived earlier this week with a statue of Jesus and a copper cross. The statue had one arm missing.

Calcagni says he paid the men $100 for the metal.

After seeing news reports about the stolen statue and cross, he learned the items, valued at $2,000, had been stolen from a park near Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Norfolk.

Calcagni called police, and the cross and statue were returned to the church.
