Police are asking people to be on the lookout for a historial Santa Clause figure that was taken from the front porch of the Vaile Victorian Mansion on Liberty Street in Independence, sometime between Tuesday and Wednesday.

Volunteers have decorated Vaile Mansion and other historical sites in Independence for fundraising tours during the holiday season. The Santa figure belongs to a Parks, Recreation and Tourism employee, police said, and has “much sentimental value.” Anyone with information about the theft should call Independence Police at 816-325-7300.
