A White Rock woman whose solar lights were stolen from her front yard early Saturday is keeping a sense of humour about the incident.
But Dianne Lyric is dead serious about the fact she wants her lights back.
In response to the theft, she’s erected a message in front of her house that she hopes will spur the culprits to do the right thing.
Posted to a plastic tombstone that she’s stood next to a sprawled-out skeleton – props from a display she erects at Halloween – it reads, “Here lies the last person that stole my solar lights… Please resurrect yourselves and return my lights.”
“If you don’t bring them back, this is what you’ll look like,” Lyric quipped.
The theft occurred around 2:30 a.m. July 6, in the 15500-block of Victoria Avenue. Lyric said her neighbour told her she saw an older truck and heard the voices of two men.
Taken were five lights – a tear-drop, two flamingos, a peacock and a fairy. The latter was a gift from a neighbour whose cat Lyric had looked after.
A search for the items at the Cloverdale flea market Sunday was unsuccessful, but Lyric is hopeful her playful message will hit home.
Anyone with information the theft is asked to contact White Rock RCMP at 778-593-3600.
