Christmas decorations swiped in Sicamous

Inflatable decorations went missing overnight on Dec. 2 and 3.

A Sicamous family awoke on Dec. 3 to find the centrepiece of their outdoor Christmas decorations had been stolen.

The inflatable and illuminated frosty the snowman was taken from Justine Bodie-Greenlaw’s front lawn on the highway frontage road near the Chevron station. The strings tethering the inflatable decoration to the ground had been cut and the decoration was nowhere to be found.

She said she is not optimistic about the stolen snowman being returned but hopes the community will keep an eye out for it anyway.

“I just hope whoever took it needed a little more Christmas cheer then I did,” Bodie-Greenlaw said.

The snowman wasn’t the only inflatable Christmas decoration to go missing in the same neighbourhood. Raegen Byron woke up on Dec. 4 to find an inflatable unicorn, a favourite decoration of her daughter had been taken from her front yard. She said the inflatable unicorn is in a sitting pose and has a Santa hat on its head.
