LIVERMORE FALLS — Someone cut strands of Christmas lights that Wayne and Pat Knowlton put up to brighten the town and lift the holiday spirit of those who pass by.
It looks like someone was walking along and used a Leatherman or something similar to it, to randomly cut strands of lights on the hedges in front of the Knowlton's house at Route 133 and Depot Street, Livermore Falls police Lt. Thomas Gould said Monday. He believes it happened Friday night.
"It stinks. They spend a lot of money on it to make the town look good," Gould said.
"We noticed quite a few of the lights were out and when I went to fix them I saw that they were cut," Wayne Knowlton said. The damage was done to four, 3- by 3-foot nets of Christmas lights, he said.
"It's terrible," Knowlton said. "We try to decorate just for the town to make it look better ... It‘s a nice corner."
