JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - UPDATE: Johnny Maloney, the vice president of Cowboy Maloney’s, donated a wreath to Dr. Quon’s office Friday!
A Grinch struck a local business twice this holiday season, but it won’t steal the Christmas spirit from one Jackson doctor.
Dr. Daniel Quon’s Christmas wreath has been stolen not once but twice this December. Two weeks ago, Dr. Quon put out a wreath in front of his office only to have it stolen.
He then put out another one but around 4:15 Thursday morning, all of the wreaths from his office building were taken once again.
“My concern is not the expense of the wreath, it’s the concept of someone actually stealing from us at the time of Christmas and that was a big issue," said Dr. Quon. “We filed a police report and I told them it wasn’t necessarily the cost of the wreath, but was the fact that someone was stealing from us in the time of Christmas when it’s supposed to be about giving instead of receiving stolen property.”
Security cameras at the doctor’s office captured a man driving in front of the building, staring it down and several moments later running off with the wreaths.
The worries of future thefts may loom over the staff, but Dr. Quon says this Grinch won’t ruin his holiday.
“My staff keeps asking me if I put more wreaths out that I’m going to bring them in every night. I would hate to think I would have to resort to doing that," said Quon. "You got to be in the Christmas spirit you know. You got to have decorations out to just get in the mood at Christmas time. So yes, we’ll probably replace the wreaths.”
The Jackson Police Department is currently investigating the thefts.
