Woman curbs theft of Christmas decorations with duct tape

Marlena Mey Saephan says to help curb the theft of her Christmas decorations, she put duct tape on her plugs to the outlets and also taped down the power cords to the cement.

Duct tape can help a lot of things— and it turns out it can also help prevent the theft of Christmas decorations.

Marlena Mey Saephan says to help curb the theft of her Christmas decorations, she put duct tape on her plugs to the outlets and also taped down the power cords to the cement.

Around 2:00 a.m. on Nov. 26 by Fahren’s Park, her surveillance cameras filmed a man walk up to her lights and attempt to pull the string. The man gave up after he realized there was more duct tape to pull up.

"Sad that we had to even duct tape our plugs together to avoid theft. On the bright side, I’m flattered that someone liked my decor enough to try and steal it," Saephan said on Facebook.
