FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

No trick or treat for one Florence neighborhood. Someone is snatching pumpkins off people's porches.

Surveillance video was taken just before midnight in the Heathrow subdivision.

But the petty theft is something the area has seen before, and multiple homes were hit in a week's time.

"It is very frustrating just to think you can't put anything on your porch anymore without fear of it being stolen. This is not the first year it's happened and there are several people in this neighborhood that don't even put pumpkins out anymore because they've been stolen in the past so many times," said Victim Chase Holcombe.

Holcombe said he is worried for the safety of whoever is doing the pumpkin stealing. Neighbors believe the thief is the same one from last year because both of the thieves similarly drove a white full-size truck.

“They need to find something more interesting than stealing pumpkins, something more fun to do and more beneficial to themselves and others,” said Neighbor Lois Holley.
