This Christmas season real-life grinch’s are on the prowl, stealing Christmas decorations.
Someone stole a holiday decoration from the front yard of a home on Crantock Road near Smithfield. The victim said they normally come home in the evening to see the Christmas light shining in their front yard. Last week they returned home to a dark front yard and the decoration valued at $50 missing.
On December 1st, security cameras captured another Grinch steal a Christmas tree from Mac’s General Merchandise on Highway 242 South of Benson. The video shows a white man driving a silver four door SUV pull up at the business after it had closed for the night. The suspect grabbed a Christmas tree for sale in front of the store, placed it on top of his SUV, tied it down, then sped away. The suspect was wearing a long sleeve green shirt, brown pants and work boots.
Authorities ask anyone who sees any suspicious activity to report it immediately.
