LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

“I went to my camera footage and I saw two Grinches stealing my decorations,” said Ashley Leach.

The Disney-fanatic purchased Minnie and Mickey Mouse Christmas-themed inflatables for her front lawn and put them up Sunday. On Monday, they were gone by the time she returned from work.

“I was infuriated,” Leach said.

The discovery was a disappointment, but Leach caught the thieving pair on camera.

In the first video, a man is seen casing her Southern Highlands home about 1 p.m.

“He takes off on his bicycle, and exactly two hours later is when they return to take the Christmas decorations,” Leach explained.

The inflatables were a $60 purchase, but Leach says it's more than the money lost.

“It is just inflatables, but it's Christmas. Why would you do that before Christmas?”

Leach desperately wants an answer and is hoping her Ring video doorbell device will help put names to the faces captured on camera.

“I didn’t think that this was going to have 40,000 views and over 1,500 shares,” Leach said of the surveillance video she shared on Facebook. “[The camera] was able to catch them, and it was able to give them the 15 minutes of fame they wanted so badly.”

Leach bought her Ring video doorbell gadget in October. The device streams live audio and video of a home's front doorstep directly to the owner’s smartphone.

Leach says this won’t ruin her Christmas but she hopes these guys are caught before they strike again.

Leach filed a police report and says she’s received several leads she hopes will bring the thieves to justice.
