How sad is this?

A Lafayette neighborhood has been hit by thieves and they reportedly stole Christmas decorations from some people's yards.

The "grinches" have been going through the Saint Streets in Lafayette and other surrounding neighborhoods taking Christmas decorations. Apparently, they didn't get the email that most of the people decorating are doing it for kids, but who knows?

Video surveillance and photos have been turned over to local authorities and the victims say that they hope that those responsible are caught and that their decorations are recovered.

If you recognize anyone in these photos those who had their decorations stolen are asking that you contact Lafayette Police.
