A New York woman was caught on a residential surveillance camera stealing the homeowner’s lollipop ornaments.
Tiffany C. Fischer, 31, of Island Park, was identified and arrested at her home Monday (Dec. 14, 2015). She was charged with petty larceny, according to Nassau County police.
Officers first thought it was a man who stole the items. The video showed a short person with a heavy build in a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
But it turns out Fischer – a woman – was the one who stole the Christmas lights and decorations from outside a home in her community, authorities say.
The theft occurred at 3:15 in the morning. She arrived in a Kia Soul, working as fast as the fictional Grinch character as she grabbed a row of light-up lollipop ornaments as well as the timers and extension cords with them. Fischer threw them in her car and sped off.
