Naughty, not nice

Okay, this has got me really annoyed. The local New Braunfels, Texas paper runs an article featuring the Christmas decorations put up by a local grandmother and some yobs come and vandalize them. Slicing them up with box cutters or knives.

Hello whoever, can't wait to prosecute you.

Vandals deflate Christmas decorations

The Herald-Zeitung

The vandals who destroyed inflatable Christmas decorations outside a Ridge Street home overnight Saturday could face the long arm of the law if they are caught. “Vandals took a razor blade or box knife to them and sliced them all up,” said Cheryl Scott, whose snowman, carousel and tree decorations were mentioned in a Herald-Zeitung story on Dec. 16.

“That’s $500 worth of ornaments down the drain — and it was the day before everyone got together at my house,” she said.Scott, a grandmother of 10, decked her yard for the holidays after undergoing major surgery in September. She hopes to offer a reward for information about the theft, which she says occurred between 10:30 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday morning.“It’s pretty devastating,” Scott said, “but it’s not going to ruin my Christmas.”
