Police warn of rise in holiday decoration thefts

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Police around the country are reporting an increase in the number of outdoor decorations being stolen this year.

As displays become larger and more elaborate they are becoming a bigger target for thieves.

Police aren't sure what the thieves are doing with the stolen goods, but suspect they are being sold at flea markets, garage sales and other places where the sales are difficult to trace.

Most of the crimes take place between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.
