    A family got back their beloved "Peanuts" Christmas decorations, but the "Grinches" who took the hand-painted items over the weekend remain on the loose.

    Three wooden “Peanuts”-themed decorations that were stolen from the front lawn of a home in the Magnolia section of Gloucester Township, New Jersey over the weekend turned up on the front step of a man's Somerdale, New Jersey home just hours later, The Gloucester Township Police Department posted to Facebook Monday morning.

    After going missing sometime after 9 p.m. Saturday, Pig Pen, Marcie and Peppermint Patty were discovered by 11 p.m. that same night, police said. A man called the Somerdale Police Department after two young men in a white vehicle pulled up to his home, left the decorations on the front step and rang the doorbell before quickly leaving the scene.

    Somerdale Police then returned the decorations to the owner.
