Christmas Decorations Stolen

Inflatable decorations meant to spread Christmas cheer to a community in the east were stolen from a college.

It happened early Tuesday morning at North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount.

Pace Winstead loaned over 100 inflatable decorations to the school for the first time this year, for them to display for the community and help to raise money for local charities. But now 1/4Th of the display is gone...27 of them were stolen.

The school is offering a $1,000 dollar reward for information leading to an arrest.

    My family and I look forward to seeing his decorations every year. Usually at his home,but due to family illness was moved to NCWC. This is so sad.

    Prank or not, it's typical of what's going on in this town. You can't even feel safe at a McDonalds drive-thru. Perhaps the name of this town should be changed to Hades.

    Probably a college kid prank. I hope they are returned. I don't go to Rocky Mount or stop there except to eat at Cracker Barrel. It is a dangerous place.

    Cant stand the inflatable crap from China. There should be a special tax on those that buy this stuff.

    Decorations are overrated anyway.
