PHOENIX (KSAZ) - The Grinch has come to Laveen, the notorious purloiner of Christmas goodies has struck before Halloween. The thief made off with some pricey decorations from the front yard of a home near 67th Avenue and Baseline.
Lots of folks decorate their homes for Halloween, but when someone comes along and steals it, it gives the phrase "Trick or Treat" a bad name.
The Kachurka family has a lot of fun with Halloween, so it hurt to see someone decided to spoil it.
Some of their best stuff, over $150 in decorations were stolen.
"We had a large skeleton ripped off, and a large skull ripped off," said Brad Kachurka.
It's upset the Kachurka's and their neighbors.
"It's really childish if you're going to steal something just ask if you are down and out we will give it to you, sad that it comes to that," said John Hack, a neighbor.
Brad hopes whoever took their stuff has a change of heart.
"Yeah, if you get a sense of guilt, and you want to, bring it back nice on our porch in the morning. Well I will go one better, anyone who stole this will be cursed, how about that, that sounds good, that sounds great, thank you," said Brad.
So if you took this stuff, or you know someone who did, it would be great to just bring it back, no questions asked.
