Polk County sheriff's deputies said the plastic doll and "realistic" painted plywood donkey were taken from Frostproof City Hall.

Deputies are offering a cash reward for information leading to the return of the doll and 4-foot-by-6-foot donkey, which were both stolen over the weekend from the nativity scene on B Street West and Scenic Highway.

The items were last seen around 6 p.m. Saturday.

Deputies said the stolen items can be returned to Frostproof City Hall at 111 First St. in Frostproof.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 800-226-8477.
