More Christmas decorations have been stolen, this time in the Silverado Ranch area.

Lori Burger's security cameras caught the thieves in the act. From the footage, Burger believed it was two women who took the decorations and they left in a older model car with a door a different color than the rest of the car.

"You can't have packages being delivered to your home because they come and take it," she said. "Obviously you can't have nice decorations out because people take it."

Thieves swiped a sleigh, a reindeer and other light up decorations right out of Burger's yard Thursday night. A few wicker figures and a wreath are all that remains.

"Once we got home and saw the video surveillance cameras my 10-year-old was astonished and that's when he asked why would someone do this, why would someone come and take that," Burger said.

She said Christmas crooks made off with about $600 worth of decorations and said many of the display pieces had sentimental value.

"This is about 10 years worth of stuff," Burger said.

Despite the theft, she said her family is not going let this incident ruin their Christmas and they plan to redecorate.

"We're not going to stop, we're going to put more decorations out," Burger said. "It's Christmas, it's the holidays. I have two kids, I'll do it again."
