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 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.”
