Mystery solved. The damage to the Christmas display in Sea Girt was not an act of vandals. Turns out it was a hungry squirrel.
Workers made repairs after police found the wires to the borough’s lights and Christmas display torn last week, authorities said.
Cops kept an eye on the decorations over the weekend and found the culprit, who was of the four-legged variety.
The officer who runs Sea Girt police’s Facebook page joked on Facebook that the squirrel was “charged with criminal mischief and released on bail.”
