Bridgeport police vow to catch Halloween decoration thief caught on camera

Posted: Updated:

A man was caught on camera swiping Halloween decorations off a front porch on Canfield Avenue.

Neighborhood residents say the robbery happened Monday, Oct. 21 around 7 p.m.

The video shows the thief peeking inside the porch windows of a home on Canfield Avenue first. He then picks up a frog decoration and a skeleton decoration soon after. He takes off with both of them in hand a few moments later.

Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez believes there is no excuse for stealing holiday cheer.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bridgeport police.
