Each year, while Santa's elves are making toys for good little girls and boys, elves of a different sort take time to make the season a little less bright.
Here is what we hope is the last of the 2012 holiday season's Christmastime crime, from the files of the Geneva Police Department:
Theft Under $300—Someone stole a 12-foot inflatable snowman as it sat in the front yard of a home in the 700 block of Meadow Lane sometime between 10 p.m. Dec. 20 and 6 a.m. Dec. 21, reports said. The decoration was valued at $200. Fresh footprints in the snow led up to and away from where the snowman sat, reports said.
