It's something you don't really think about being stolen, but a Grinch is stealing Christmas decorations, lights and all!

A Boise woman named Corey Gucker says in her neighborhood there is friendly competition about who can put up the biggest Christmas display, but this year her decorations have already been stolen.

Someone took her plug in light display on Tuesday and Boise Police Sergeant John Terry says stealing and vandalizing Christmas displays is something they see this time of year, even though overall its not that common.

He says the thieves usually travel on foot and he encourages people to get to know their neighbors better, look out for each other, and report if you see anything suspicious.

According to KTVB, Corey Gucker plans to report the theft to Boise Police.
