Police in Frankenmuth are looking some “grinches” who literally stole Christmas from Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland. An estimated $40,000 in damage was done to 75 Christmas Displays.
Bronner’s spokeswoman Maria Sutorik says police are still looking for the suspects, but they are starting to connect the dots.
“I know they did recover some forensic evidence with the help of some canine dogs Christmas morning,” Sutorik said.
“So hopefully that will lead them down the right path.”
Sutorik says what was most upsetting to see was the nativity scene destroyed.
“Baby Jesus had been turned over and some of the figures had been basically uprooted and tossed,” Sutorik said.
“Hands were broken. The wise man was taken off the camel. The donkey’s legs, ears were broken, things like that.”
Sutorik says the vandals didn’t discriminate.
“They went after carolers, nutcrackers, Santa, reindeer and angels too.”
Sutorik says they will offer a reward for any information on the crime, but they have yet to set an amount.
