Thieves steal Halloween spirit in Fleetwood

Private investigator on the hunt for a missing ghost in Surrey.

Local investigators are on the lookout for a ghost in Fleetwood.

For the last 10 years, every October, Dean Lodge and his family have set up a large halloween display in the front yard of their home at 15741 108 Ave. in Fleetwood. And each year the scary display gets bigger and bigger, attracting kids from all over Surrey.

However, last weekend thieves have made off with one of the main attractions – a nine-metre inflatable white ghost.

Lodge wants it back.

“Every year we set up the display for the kids,” he said.

Kaley Lodge said her family makes an effort to entertain the neighbourhood youth.

“We inflate the display in the morning for the kids going to school, then we inflate them again in the evening,” she said.

But this year, someone stole the big ghost and a pair of smaller two-metre-tall spiders as well.

Someone would have had to come into the yard to grab the ghost some time late Saturday night or Sunday morning as the fan is turned off overnight and the ghost lays deflated on the lawn.

“The ghost is on casters, because it’s quite heavy,” said Kayley, “so it wouldn’t have been easy to move.”

Last year, more than 500 kids wandered through the Lodges’ display. They even have a transit bus stop in front of the house.

A reward is being offered for the return of the items and any information regarding the theft can forwarded to Lodge and Associates Investigations at 604-671-6715.

“The bottom line is we just want our ghost back,” Kayley said.
