Was it the Grinch, Scrooge, or a Thief?
Wednesday, January 30, 2013 • Posted January 31, 2013 3:09 PM

All of the lights that PEC took down in Bindseil Park on Friday have been stolen. There were probably 45 boxes of lights at approximately $9 per box. For the second year, extension cords were stolen at the Lavender Washateria and the concrete donkey that was in our Nativity Scene was stolen this past year from the front of our storehouse. The wire that connected the two power boards was also stolen before we decorated the park. One of the power boards was stolen from behind the Blanco Chamber of Commerce.

I have a hard time understanding what kind of a person walks by something and just thinks it is alright to take something that does not belong to them. Is it being a Scrooge or just a plain thief?

I think who did this is at the bottom of the pit and just a plain old thief. The thievery has been reported to the Blanco City Police Department and hopefully they find who stole our items.

KBB operates on memberships, sponsorships, and donations. We have just lost most of the lights that we would be using to decorate the treetops at the Trail of Lights in 2013.

Please, if you know who it is that is stealing in Blanco report them to the Blanco Police Department so theft can be stopped.
