Tim Boyle/Getty Images(SAN ANTONIO) — A Texas man was caught by surveillance cameras stealing the holiday decorations from a front lawn in San Antonio this weekend.

In footage obtained by ABC affiliate KSAT, the man can be seen driving past the house in a white vehicle early on Sunday morning, then brazenly walking up to the house and making off with an inflatable sled and snowman.

The culprit then creeps back and snatches an inflatable train set and Santa Claus from the lawn. But that wasn’t all.

“He ran across the street to the other neighbor’s house, taking their inflatable sled, and ran back to his car,” a woman, who only identified herself as Diana, told KSAT. “Her snowman was also missing and they just put theirs out a couple nights ago.”

Diana said that she reported the theft to police, but she is not going to allow the local Grinch to ruin her Christmas. She says she reported the incident to help protect her neighbors.

“This can’t be left like that,” she said. “Other people need to be aware that this guy is out there.”
