And now, to continue the tradition of Christmastime malevolence, we bring you a pair of yuletide bandits who, according to police, stole Christmas decorations off of a home in South Philadelphia, which I’m pretty sure is a capital offense in that particular neighborhood.
Watch the video of the Christmas decoration theft below:
