Big Inflatable Helicopter Piloted By Santa Stolen From Temecula Family

“What a Grinch to steal this helicopter. My wife talked to the homeowners and their two young children are heart broken.”

Neighbors along Katie Court in Temecula are upset after it was discovered that a holiday scrooge stole a beloved Christmas decoration right out of a front yard there.

“My neighbors … had a very unique inflatable Santa helicopter stolen from their front yard,” reported Christopher Howard, who asked that Patch help spread the word about the illegal and unholiday-like act.

The large decoration was pilfered sometime Tuesday night in the 44300 block of Katie Court, said Howard, who described the item as being a blow-up helicopter with blades that spin and a Santa in the cockpit.

“The whole copter lights up,” Howard explained.

“My children love walking by this house every night to admire my neighbor’s great holiday display,” he added, saying that the home won an award this year for its festive décor. “What a Grinch to steal this helicopter. My wife talked to the homeowners and their two young children are heart broken.”

Anyone with information about this crime should contact the Temecula Police Department at (951) 696-3000.

There was a Mickey Mouse stolen in our neighborhood. The owner's put a sign where Mickey once stood. The thieves are also going through the neighborhood stealing the subdivision markers that are made of brass. I know the economy is bad but seriously people, did your parent's not tell it was wrong to take what is not yours?!

response to Rodger cambell: Dude I support worthy causes in my country America. But there are so many scams out there I select just two . The Salvation Army and Research for the Blind. The Blind live is a universe of DARKNESS. Bye the way I don't understand the low life bottom feeder (s) who stole that holiday scrooge.. First catch the thief take the thief to the center of OLD Town. . Hang a sign round its neck, that says I am a thief I stole the holiday scrooge . OH but that would be against the LAW, and the politically correct crap that perviate America. Enjoy a tranquil day ...dude

Hey R C dude . City of Christchurch in New Zealand hit by a 7.9 quake.. Did the New Zealand people ( 99% white from England) whine and moan .. NO they got on with rebuilding and asked for no money from outside. They are now back in business. Haiti hit with a 7.8 quake. The Haitians panicked . And $5 billion sent to them . But today Haiti is still a shambles with tens thousands living in tents .The Haitians are brown people, and no one knows where the $5 billion went.. No I am not racist I am stating facts. I didn't see any nation sending my country $5 billion to help with the SANDY storm back east. that hit a few weeks ago.
