Chester police are looking for a man caught on surveillance camera stealing a 20-foot Santa and snowman.
Justin Tetz says his cameras started going off Thursday morning, alerting him of the theft at his home on Summerville Way.
He says he set off an alarm to try to deter the suspect, but the thief still got away with his decorations before he could get home.
"I got a notification when I was at work and for some reason the camera didn't pick up the first part of it. So, when it notified me, the Santa was already gone. It went off. I looked on the camera, and he was already picking up the snowman," says Tetz.
Tetz says the inflatable Santa and snowman cost $1,200, and that this was only the second season he had them out.
Anyone with information is asked to call Town of Chester Police.
