It seems to happen somewhere in Hopkinsville in the weeks before Christmas each year and it happened again over the weekend—someone’s Christmas decorations were destroyed by vandals.
Hopkinsville Police were called to the Calvin Manor Apartments on Calvin Drive Sunday afternoon after Pam Neely said someone took a sharp instrument and slashed holes in an inflatable Christmas tree, snowman and Santa Claus.
The decorations were valued at 200 dollars and a suspect is listed on the report. The crime happened some time between 5:30pm Saturday and 5pm Sunday.
Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway is warning state residents of holiday scams.
