Grinches are at work in the area, stealing Christmas decorations from two rural homes over the weekend.
A four foot lighted Santa was taken from a residence along Cr 75E, near Baseline Road. The owner discovered the theft at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday, and saw tracks leading from the road to the home.
Two Gingerbread men were taken later from a home in the 100E block of CR 400S. The thieves left their footprints in the snow, going from the road to the home's porch to take the decorations. That crime was reported at 5 p.m. Sunday.
Although no one witnessed the crimes, it's believed the suspects had hearts two sizes too small.
