A woman, dubbed ‘The Grinch’ has been caught on CCTV allegedly stealing Christmas decorations from the front yard of a suburban Melbourne home.
In footage uploaded to Facebook by Nuria Celentano, the woman can be seen stashing ‘Santa Stop Here’ signs and other festive decorations into a large garbage bag.
“Here is the video of the lovely lady that stole our Christmas lights and the kids Santa Stop here signs! If u know who she is just tell her to return the stuff back….l would rather not meet her,” Ms Celentano posted.

In an interview with A Current Affair on Wednesday night, Ms Celentano said her young son was heartbroken after discovering his santa signs were missing.
“My son’s biggest thing was his Santa stop here sign, because to him its like wow Santa knows where to come,” the mum-of-two said.
“Literally every morning we walk outside, he’ll go check them, make sure that they’re straight, that they haven’t blown off. To see them gone it was pretty shattering for him.”
