Surveillance cameras caught two men stealing Halloween decorations from Miami homes Monday, WPLG reported.

Surveillance cameras at Teresa Prol’s home showed two men dressed in black clothing stealing eight metallic pumpkins from her front porch around 5 a.m, the television station reported.

"The cost is minor," Prol told WPLG. "It's just the fact that they shouldn't do these things."

Still, Prol is angry.

"I want to shame them because this is something — this is for the kids, basically, and you don't really do these things," Prol told WSVN.

Prol’s neighbor, Ken Serif, also had some decorations stolen.

"The scarecrow was here in the corner, stood about 18 inches tall," Serif told WSVN.

Serif said the scarecrow was a sentimental decoration.

“We picked it up about five-and-a-half years ago, and it was very dear to my daughter, who is now 12, so she’s a little more upset than my son is,” he told the television station.
