A Cape Cod resident thought someone was stealing decorations from her lawn when she began to find decorations missing and sometimes scattered in nearby yards.
This “someone” turned out to be a coyote.
After the owner reported the theft, which had happened several times overnight over the weekend, to the Orleans Police Department on October 17, officers packed the area of the house on Brick Hill Road and conducted surveillance using night vision goggles.
After weeks without success, the owner decided to move a security camera to the area where the decorations were and discovered that it was a coyote.
