When police looked through the window of one Orange County man's home and found an abundance of Christmas spirit inside, they knew they had a suspect for all the missing decorations from around the neighborhood. "Westminster police said Monday that officers responded to a disturbance call at the house of 48-year-old Vuong Pham, where they found rooms overflowing with wicker reindeer, plastic snowmen and inflatable Santas," reported the Associated Press. "For weeks people in Pham's neighborhood had reported a steady disappearance of lights, figures and faux trees from their front yards." It took three truckloads to empty the home.
