ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police say a suspected pair of bandits is robbing Albuquerque homes of their colorful, outside holiday displays.

KOAT-TV reports (https://goo.gl/0HJCee) authorities say at least two families have had blow-up Christmas characters stolen from lawns.

Bryan Pesko recently told the station an ornament shaped like two penguins riding a sled, worth about $100, were yanked early Monday.

Police says a nearby house also had its inflatables stolen.

Albuquerque police spokesman Simon Drobik says authorities are warning residents to be watchful of the thieves.

No arrests have been made.
