Christmas lights hit in Brodhead

BRODHEAD - Brodhead Police investigated an apparent act of holiday sabotage on Saturday after a resident reported their Christmas lights had been cut.

The string of lights, hanging in the 100 block of 15th Street, was found severed by a clean cut that ruled out an accidental cut or animal involvement, said Brodhead Police Chief Chris Hughes.

Although no other cases of light-cutting were reported last weekend, decoration destruction is not uncommon around the holiday season, Hughes said.

There are currently no suspects in last Saturday's incident, although petty vandals are more likely the cause than local Grinches.

"It comes in peaks and valleys, but it picks up this time of year," Hughes said. "Like Halloween with pumpkin smashing."

Anyone who finds similar damage to their holiday decorations is strongly encouraged to contact their local police office.
