Another 'Bad Santa' Act in Police Reports
Blotter: Here's the latest in a series of petty crimes against Christmas.
Another case of violence against holiday lights came up in this week's police reports.
Avid police-report readers will recall the first of the season's evil ho-ho-ho echoing from sometime between Nov. 24 and 25, when someone cut the cords of holiday lights at a home in the 1400 block of Fargo Boulevard. Police later discovered that tires in the neighborhood had been slashed on the same night.
Then there were the Scrooge or Scrooges who took holiday decorations from local merchants: a planter with holiday decorations from the Cocoa Bean sometime between Nov. 25 and 27 and a 24-inch Christmas wreath from Artemesia sometime between Nov. 27 and 28.
Now, police report that someone cut the wires of Christmas lights in front of a residence in the 2200 block of Kings Court sometime between Dec. 2 and Dec. 11. The officer observed the string of lights on the ground with a cut in the line. The cut was clean and did not appear to have been done by an animal, reports said.
