Perth’s single mother filmed a real Christmas grinch stealing lights from outside the house.
A home security camera shot a thief stealing a complex display of Christmas illuminations from outside a family home on Mount Hawthorne.
The footage shot around 11:00 pm this week shows the thief scoping the display on his bike and then returning to dismantle the lights.
The display included a solar-powered wreath, a blue shimmering light, and a small illuminated Christmas tree that was still lit when the thief gathered them on his arm and carried them away.

Ebony had to rely on bolting her decorations after the incident that left her rewind.
“No one should steal Christmas decorations, that’s Christmas cheers, right? It’s just sad,” she told Sunrise.
“I am very angry.”
Sadly, she had to break the news that the lights went out to her 4-year-old son who helped create the display.
“He asked where they were, so I said,’They are with Santa,'” she said.
“Can you really say” Grinch ruined Christmas “because he chose them?” A 4-year-old can’t do that. “
Ebony begged for the return of the lights, but some were unusable due to the solar panels being cut off.
Police will warn people who shop online to be vigilant in reports of package thieves nationwide.
The thief was photographed with parcels taken out of people’s doorways and pouches for Christmas.
