Neighbors support victims of holiday decorations vandal
The incident occurred on Friday, Dec. 13, at the DonMac Drive residence of David and Joyce Bourque. About $600 in damage was done by an individual who can be seen on the video running across the lawn and slashing the inflatable decorations with a knife.
David Bourque said the incident hasn't been brought to a close yet since no one has been identified or arrested. But he is still grateful for the generosity Home Depot has displayed.
In addition, neighbors have offered their support and helped set up the display on Friday, Bourque said. Neighbor John O'Connor, a state representative, stopped by Friday to help Bourque clear snow and set up the new decorations donated by Home Depot.
They were also able to patch one inflatable decoration that was slashed in the incident and has sentimental value to Bourque's wife. The decoration of a Disney-themed sleigh was given to Joyce Bourque as a present in memory of her mother, David Bourque said.
"We've been getting that all morning," Bourque said. "It's a wave and a 'thank you' and a couple of emails from neighbors that say "I'll bring my grandkids by."'
Police are investigating the vandalism, Derry police Capt. Vern Thomas said in an email Thursday.
Bourque said he has turned over a copy of the video to police and they have attempted to enhance the images. Bourque said the report was just filed on Wednesday so he wasn't "expecting much in two days."
