Seattle Washington native Margaret Rican was very confused when she noticed the Christmas bulbs outside her house disappearing. Her family has been stringing lights outside their home for 15 years, but only noticed them disappearing earlier this week.
Then she caught a squirrel in the act, capturing video on her phone of a thieving critter leaping around her deck and running away with bulbs in its mouth. Within 24 hours, Rican said it stole 150 bulbs.
Neighbors say they're finding bulbs in their backyards and have dubbed the squirrel "The Bulb Bandit".
