HESPERIA – A Hesperia family felt violated when they woke up on Saturday morning for a part of their Christmas decor gone. “ It’s scary to know someone was so close to our home,” said Hesperia resident Sandra Soto on a Facebook post. “I mean I know people walk by but this was just so close.”
Soto said that she has had the over 5’ tall inflatable BBQ Chef Santa Claus for five years. Even worse than feeling violated by someone coming so close to her home to commit the theft, Sandra said that her 4-year-old granddaughter has been very sad about it and has asked for her Santa repeatedly.
The inflatable decoration was stolen sometime between late Friday night and early Saturday morning near Peridot Avenue in the City of Hesperia. Soto said it is not even about the over $300 Santa inflatable, which was pulled off of the tie down stakes, it was the fact that people do not respect the property of others and do not earn the things that they want anymore.
The incident was not reported to authorities, Soto said she is just considering it a loss. She would like to know if anyone sees one being sold or in a nearby yard. If anyone has seen the stolen inflatable Santa, she would like them to contact her via Facebook messenger.
