ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Vandals have struck again in a festive St. Louis neighborhood.

On Monday, we told you about Murdoch Avenue in the St. Louis Hills neighborhood and how it transforms to Candy Cane Lane.

Neighbors have been decorating the street for nearly 10 years.

Someone tried to spoil the fun earlier in the week by stealing some of the decorations and on Wednesday we learned that the real-life Grinches were back in the wee hours of the morning.

More decorations were stolen including the Candy Cane Lane sign and a power line was cut.

Neighbors say they won't let vandals steal Christmas.

"You know there are a lot residents here that work every year that try to make it special but there are so many people that come through the lane tell us it's part of their Christmas tradition and so it's really sad," said Beth Landers.

"Frustrated but we are committed to this program that we have here that we do once a year and the good we do for the people who need it so it's not going to deter us in the least," said Bob Klasek.

Neighbors on Candy Cane Lane don't just put the decorations up for themselves, they collect money for various charities including the Salvation Army.
