A New Lenox teen allegedly vandalized the Christmas decorations at a home about a mile from his own.
Tyler Tsokatos, 19, of 195 Otto Drive was charged with criminal damage to property in connection with the incident in the 1100 block of Patriot Drive.
A New Lenox police officer was sent to the scene of the alleged crime shortly after 11:30 p.m. Tuesday and was told by a man there "that Tsokatos damaged his Christmas decorations," police said.
Tsokatos was arrested but posted bond and was released.
This alleged holiday havoc happened only days after a Green Garden shed was looted and about $15,000 worth of Christmas decorations disappeared.
