Christmas Decorating The Wrong Way

Man charged with stealing yard decorations
EDISON, N.J. (UPI) -- A New Jersey man impressed the neighbors, but not police, with his front yard display of allegedly stolen Christmas decorations. Alfred Morta, 49, of Edison, was arrested on charges he helped himself to outdoor decorations from other houses, plus some patio furniture. "In one weekend two weeks ago, a dozen homes were hit in a three-block area," Metuchen police officer David Liantonio told the Newark Star-Ledger. Liantonio said nearly 100 items were reported stolen in Edison and neighboring Metuchen. Morta came under suspicion after a neighbor saw a news story about the thefts and recognized some of the decorations on Morta's lawn.
