Vandals decapitate Frosty, shank Santa
In the Grinchiest of moves Wednesday night, vandals destroyed Christmas displays in the front yards of two homes on Bonnyview Drive.
"It's just real obnoxious," said homeowner Becky Jones, who woke up Thursday morning in the 3000 block of Bonnyview Drive to find the head of her $60 wire-and-lights snowman had been ripped off.
This was the second time in a week Jones was hit. On Tuesday morning, a neighbor at the corner of Sandalwood and Bonnyview found vandals had torn up his decorations and Jones discovered her snowman was headless. She spent an hour repairing the damage, even using a bread bag twist-tie to fix a hole near the snowman's eye.
