Christmas lights targeted by thieves


WITH THE NEW CHARGES, THE JUDGE REVOKED THAT BOND. HE’LL STAY LOCKED UP UNTIL THE HEARING ON DECEMBER 15TH. NEW AT 7:00 TONIGHT, POLICE SAY THIS SURVEILLANCE VIDEO SHOWS A CHRISTMAS CROOK, A REAL-LIFE GRINCH WHO HOPS OUT OF A CAR, SWIPES HOLIDAY LIGHTS OUT OF SOMEONE’S YARD AND DRIVES OFF. NOW OFFICERS WARN EVERYONE WITH THESE LIGHTS TO BE ON ALERT. LESS THAN A DAY AFTER THAT CRIME WAS CAUGHT ON CAMERA, THIEVES TARGETED ANOTHER HOME WITH THE SAME KIND OF LIGHT. THAT THEFT WAS FOILED BUT TONIGHT A LITTLE GIRL IS DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE THE FAMILY PULLED THE PLUG ON THE TEMPTATION. THE FAMILY SAYS LAST NIGHT THEY SAW A CAR WITH THREE PEOPLE PULL UP, ATTEMPTING TO STEAL THEIR CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. POLICE TOLD THEM THEY WEREN’T THE ONLY HOME BEING TARGETED. HE TOOK THESE PICTURES ON MONDAY EVENING. APOPKA POLICE OFFICERS NOTICING A GROUP OF PEOPLE ATTEMPTING TO STEAL HIS LIGHT DISPLAY. POLICE WERE ON ALERT AND LOOKING OUT. I HAPPENED TO SEE A CAR SCOPING OUT MY HOUSE AND THE GUY GOT OUT TO GO TAKE THE PRODUCT FROM MY YARD. WHEN HE CAME OUT, THIS IS WHAT HE SAW. THE HOT TICKET ITEM HE SAYS THE CROOKS WANTED, THE STAR SHOWER LIGHTS, SEEN HERE ADVERTISED ON THE COMPANY’S WEBSITE. THEY’RE SELLING FOR GOOD MONEY ONLINE. IT’S A LASER LIGHT SHOW THAT YOU BASICALLY JUST PLUG IN. FOR ME, IT WAS EASE OF NOT CLIMBING ON THE ROOF, BUT IT ACTUALLY WILL PROJECT LIGHTS ALL OVER YOUR ENTIRE HOUSE. HE SAYS HE HAD TO BREAK THE NEWS TO HIS 4-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, WHY HER FAVORITE LIGHT DISPLAY WOULD BE NO MORE THIS CHRISTMAS. MY DAUGHTER THIS MORNING, WHO REALLY LOVED THE STAR SHOWERS, YOU KNOW, SHE WAS EXCITED ABOUT PUTTING THEM UP. WE TOLD HER, HEY, WE CAN’T DO IT ANYMORE BECAUSE SOME BAD PERSON CAME BY AND DECIDED TO TRY TO TAKE IT FROM US. SO WE’LL JUST HAVE TO PUT UP SOME OTHER KIND OF LIGHTS. HE SAYS IT’S UNFORTUNATE A SCROOGE HAD TO MESS WITH THEIR FAVORITE HOLIDAY. I THINK IT’S SAD THAT PEOPLE ARE RESORTING TO STUFF LIKE THAT. CHRISTMAS IS A HAPPY TIME OF YEAR. YOU EXPECT IF YOU’RE GOING TO SHOW THE JOY OF CHRISTMAS THAT EVERYONE ELSE WILL, TOO. THE FAMILY SAYS THEY DECIDED TO TAKE DOWN THE SPECIFIC LIGHTS THAT WERE TARGETED BY THIEVES, LEAVING UP ONLY THEIR OTHER DECORATIONS SAYING THEY’LL TRY AGAIN NEXT YEAR. TROY FILED HIS REPORT. WE LEARNED APOPKA POLICE WERE STAKING OUT THE FAMILY’S HOME BECAUSE OF THE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO WE SHOWED YOU A COUPLE OF MINUTES AGO. THERE WERE THREE PEOPLE IN THE CAR POLICE PULLED OVER. SO FAR ONLY ONE PERSON IS FACING CHARGES.
