Thieves Steal Christmas Decorations From Homes

Police are on the hunt for thieves who they say stole Christmas decorations from at least three homes in Toms River, New Jersey.

Police say two men stole wooden choir boy decorations from a home on Beechtree Drive on Saturday around 4 a.m. A surveillance video recorded the suspects pulling up to the home in a Sedan, according to investigators.

Police also say thieves stole metal ornaments of Jesus and Joseph from a lawn on 13th Street.

“I’m very surprised because that never happened to us before,” said Carl Raczynski, one of the victims. “We were just playing out there and they were gone. It’s disappointing, the fact that they would do that.”

Finally, around 11 p.m. on Saturday, police say two men stole a snowman display from a home on Silver Bay Road. Police told the Asbury Park Press that the suspects placed the snowman in an older silver Nissan Pathfinder and then fled the area west on Silver Bay Road.

Police are investigating whether or not all three thefts are related.

If you have any information on the thefts, please call the Toms River Police Department at 732-349-0150.
