Home surveillance system captures footage of reindeer thieves, still no sign of Santa
A Visalia, California family's world was turned upside-down over the weekend when a group of young hooligans ran off with their beloved Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer lawn ornament. Thankfully the family had recently installed a video surveillance system for their home, and the cameras were able to capture footage of the thieves in action.
The cameras were originally installed after the family's car was broken into. Now they're able to keep an eye on their vehicles along with the rest of their property, including of course dear old Rudolph. While the thieves haven't been identified yet, video images have been turned over to the police and also made public. Often in these situations, other local residents recognize the suspects from the surveillance footage and come forward to help solve the investigation.
