Spate of thefts of Christmas decorations in Hornchurch and Harold Wood

A spate of thefts of Christmas decorations have taken place in Hornchurch and Harold Wood recently - including three in one night.

Overnight on December 11-12 a wreath was stolen from a front door in Cranham Road, Hornchurch. It had been attached by cable ties which had been cut.

On the same night in Osborne Road, Hornchurch, holly and icy decorations were stolen from the front door of a house.

Meanwhile, another front door wreath and a Father Christmas statue were snatched from the front door of a house in North Street, Hornchurch.

On Saturday, at 6.10pm in Greenway, Harold Wood, two 80cm tall reindeer were stolen from a front garden.

One reindeer nods its head up and down and the other shakes it from side-to-side.

Anyone with information about the crimes should contact Romford CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
