WOMAN ARRESTED FOR BURNING NEIGHBORS’ CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS
April 29 (MINNE@P*LIS)—A thirty four year old mother of two was held for questioning this afternoon after a neighbor witnessed her allegedly removing evergreen wreaths from four houses near her home on the xxxx block of xx Avenue South, then using them to build a bon fire on the sidewalk.
The neighbor, who called the police at around 1 p.m., recalled, “She looked real calm, but real determined. She was carrying her baby, and the little girl was following after her.”
“It’s almost May!” the woman was heard to yell as police escorted her away from the blazing wreaths. “It’s time to move on!”
The woman, whom the police report identified only as “caro,” could not be reached for comment. Her husband was reluctant to speak to reporters but noted that, since mid-February, his wife had frequently “ranted” about the continued presence of the wreaths. “It’s been a long winter,” he observed. “It could be that the snow this past weekend put her over the edge.”
