STANTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police are investigating the theft of Christmas decorations in Stanton.

According to a post on their Facebook page, the Kiwanis Club of Powell County and Stanton Tourism worked together to put up lights around town.

Police say on Saturday “some nincompoop decided to cut down one of these lights, a 7-foot-tall light up nutcracker, and steal it.”

Police say they are reviewing security footage of that location and time of the theft.

Police say the culprit(s), could possibly avoid felony charges if they come forward now.

Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact Powell County Dispatch Center at 606-663-4116.
