For Alekos 2 Go owner Steve Kontos, the Grinch came early.

Kontos showed up at work Friday morning to notice some of the lights stolen from his Christmas tree outside and an American flag stolen from the property.

“I’m inside prepping, running back and forth, and I noticed out front there was a stack of lightbulbs from the Christmas tree laying on the ground,” he said. “I thought that was weird because they were on last night when we left.”

Kontos also realized that the heat was not working when he went inside.

“Everything was fine in here, then I figured this (person) climbed on the roof and shut off the manual cutoffs that are on the roof,” he said. “I went up there, found my freezer compressor was shut off on the cutoff on the roof, the heat was shut off on the cutoff on the roof, and the American flag was stolen that we have in the front.”

Police stopped by the property around 10:15 a.m. to talk to Kontos Friday. He said that he would be able to replace what was stolen but still described the situation as “frustrating.”

“It’s Christmas time and someone’s going to steal Christmas lights and an American flag that’s worn out,” he said. “They’re that pathetic.”

Kontos said that he left work around 9:30 p.m. Thursday and arrived around 8 a.m. Friday.
