Year after year, the young children on Addington Road enjoyed Rchard DiSalvo’s Halloween decorations.
This year, an unknown thief has ruined that tradition. DiSalvo, an Addington Road resident, said someone stole the scarecrow from his front yard.
“Every holiday, we try to decorate outside for the children to see,” he said. "We had put scarecrows out and the other night someone took one.”
DiSalvo said a disappointed little girl was saddened by the loss of the scarecrow.
“Her mom said she has to come by every morning so she can see them,” DiSalvo said. “It’s great to see how much they like seeing them. That is why I do it.”
Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the scarecrow is asked to return it to the West Roxbury neighborhood.
