LIVERMORE FALLS — They've had it.
Someone cut the wires to Pat and Wayne Knowlton's Christmas lights on their shrubs for a second time in a week. Wires on four sets of lights were cut on Nov. 27 and four different wires were cut either Thursday night or early Friday.
"This is it," Pat Knowlton said Friday as she helped her husband repair the lights on the shrubs in front of their house on the corner of Depot Street and Route 133.
If it happens again, there will be no lights, she said.
"Everybody couldn't believe the lights were cut last week, and now they are cut again," she said.
This time a chair was stolen from a porch on the side of the house. It was found up the street on someone else's lawn, Knowlton said.
"It's not right," Addie Taylor, a Livermore Falls businesswoman, said when she heard about the lights while at the Knowltons.
"Ever since we've been here, we've been decorating," Knowlton said. "I love Christmas."
The couple has lived on the corner for about 25 years and also operate Pat's Wallpaper at the site.
The police will be watching the area more closely, Knowlton said.
She went straight to the police station Friday morning to report the damage. She's checking around to see if anyone saw anybody hanging around the lights, she said.
Police Lt. Thomas Gould said Monday that the first time it happened, it looked like someone had been walking along and used a Leatherman or something similar to cut the wires.
