LFP Police released photos of one thief
By Diane Hettrick

Judging by comments on this site and in social media, the Austin family in Lake Forest Park are not the only family to lose their Christmas outdoor decorations to thieves. (Thieves steal Christmas in Lake Forest Park).

At least two other families on their street are missing decorations. One caught the thieves on surveillance camera. Another had an alarm that was triggered but the thieves were gone before he could get outside.

Reports are coming in from North City as well.

It's starting to look like the same pattern as mail thieves. Cruise down a street, grab and move on. Alarms and cameras don't stop them, although motion detector lights might be a deterrent. One person suggested hotwiring the decorations, but there are many reasons to avoid that method (pets, children).

Let your police department know so they can track the pattern and give them any photos you have of thieves in action. When the police pick them up for other crimes and offenses, they'll have theft to add to the charges.

And if you see suspicious activity on your street, call 911. Police love to catch perps in the act!

This happened to us around Halloween. About 90% of our decorations, most of which were homemade, were stolen.
