Police: Squirrel blamed for vandalizing Christmas lights
SEA GIRT - The Associated Press
It was a squirrel that nearly stole Christmas in a New Jersey town.
Sea Girt officials were puzzled when wires to the town’s Christmas tree and display were found torn last week. Workers repaired the damage so the tree could be lit on Dec. 8.
Police kept watch over the display and on Dec. 2 posted a photo on Facebook of the culprit - a squirrel.
Police said the squirrel was "charged with criminal mischief and released on bail."
