Police: 2 Fla. women stole Christmas decorations

Police say two South Florida women are accused of stealing Christmas decorations from their neighbor's yard and putting them in a yard less than a block away.

Police in the Miami suburb of Sweetwater say about $500 of items were taken, including Mickey Mouse on a horse, hugging penguins, Snoopy on a doghouse and Santa on a sled.

Miami television station WSVN reports surveillance camera video captured the two thieves taking the decorations from the lawn of Inrid Alemendarez's home (http://bit.ly/tytq7G).

She called police Thursday after spotting the decorations on a lawn less than a block away. The women were arrested on charges of grand theft. Their names were not released.
