Arkansas City police are investigating a Grinch-like crime in the southwest Kansas town.
Police say thieves who hit at least 10 homes during the weekend stole mostly Christmas decorations and broke several windows.
Police Captain Mark McCaslin says the thefts were in the northwest part of the city and were likely related.
One of the thefts was at the home of Donna Wells, where thieves took a wreath from a front porch that had belonged to her son, who died last year.
Anyone with information on the thefts is encouraged to call Arkansas City police.
