Vandals, thieves spoil Christmas

VANDALS and thieves were out at the weekend intent on spoiling the Christmas spirit as they damaged display lights and stole Santa’s sweets for children.

Junction Hill couple Sharon and Rod Cannon awakened yesterday morning to find vandals had entered their yard and cut the Christmas lights.

The couple had devoted time to putting up the lights for their grandchildren.

The Cannons said they were disappointed to know that someone had entered the property with intention of ‘dampening’ the Christmas season.

“While disappointed we are not going to allow a senseless act like this ruin the special time that we intend to have with our loved ones this year,” Mrs Cannon said.

In a separate incident, Santa and his helper were out in their Moke playing Christmas carols and handing out lollies to children, when the bag of lollies fell out of the vehicle at the Fitzroy Street roundabout, Grafton. Someone alighted from a passing car and stole the lollies.
