Thieves Take Candy Cane Lane Decorations

The Woodland Hills home owners had spent a week decorating.

Woodland Hills' Candy Cane Lane will be missing some of its usual ornaments this year. Someone took them from the lawn of one of the Valley's most decorated streets earlier this week.

Homeowners Bill and Rosemarie Rush said about $400 worth of decorations were taken from their front lawn. Six inflatable decorations and about a half dozen over-sized, plastic candy canes were taken, the Rushes told the Daily News.

The thieves even took some electric cords and timers, KABC news reported.

Bill Rush told KABC he was "a little bit upset about the $4-500 worth in costs," but the family has already replaced many of the stolen items and plans to continue its two-decade tradition.

"We'll continue to decorate. Just maybe I'll put a silent alarm out or something," he told KABC.

Candy Cane Lane is located at Lubao and Oxnard streets. The annual event begins Saturday. Homeowners, who informally put on the holiday light and decoration show, ask visitors to drive by no later than 10 p.m. on week nights and 11 p.m. on weekends.
