Vero police seek naked Scrooge who defaced Christmas decor

VERO BEACH — The Vero Beach Police Department is on the lookout for a naked man who tore down Christmas decorations from a Three Avenues business and tossed the store’s potted plants into the nearby parking lot.

The incident was caught on Carvel Ice Cream and Bakery’s security camera around 2:40 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 15. In all, the naked white man is responsible for about $40 worth of damage, according to the police report. Officers canvassed the area around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday after the owner of the store saw the security footage.

Investigators found no other damage in the area, though they noted it appeared as though someone had slept on the couches outside Joey’s Restaurant nearby.

Increased police patrols in the area have been requested.
