VIRGINIA BEACH-Vandals are trying hard to spoil Christmas for several Va. Beach families.

Decorations have been stolen or damaged at seven homes in Courthouse Estates.

Katie Brett Reper said, 'We never have anything happen like this here. They are taking front lawn decorations - deer, snowmen, Christmas trees.'

She describes her neighborhood as 'over the top with decorations.'

The vandals struck Monday, cutting Christmas lights and stealing decorations, and then again a day or two later.

The neighborhood is about three miles from where thieves stole the figures of baby Jesus and Mary from a yard on Lower Greens Place.
