The holiday spirit has dimmed in one Honolulu neighborhood where a resident says a thief tried to make off with his outdoor Christmas lights.

Police say they arrested a 43-year-old man accused of yanking the lights from the home Thursday. Hoku Garza tells KITV he saw the man after he heard his dog "barking uncontrollably" early Thursday morning and yelled at him to leave.

He says the man mentioned a gun. Garza says he called police who chased the suspect down the street and arrested him
