New York Leg Lamp Heist Pulled by Someone With Bad Taste

By    |   Tuesday, 23 Dec 2014 09:45 AM

Someone made off with a leg lamp like the one belonging to Ralphie's father in the movie "A Christmas Story" that was on display in the window of  a New York liquor store.

The Associated Press reported the owner of the Yankee Spirits liquor store in North Tonawanda as saying his annual window display honoring the holiday classic included memorabilia from the 1983 film, including several versions of the now-iconic leg lamp.

The store's surveillance video shows a man in a gray hoodie and sunglasses walking into the store and glancing around before he grabs a large leg lamp and leaves.

Store owner Gary Brennan tells Buffalo's WIVB-TV even his customers are angry about the theft.

In the movie, Ralphie's father wins a prize that turns out to be a garish lamp in the shape of a woman's leg in a fishnet stocking. Ralphie's mother "accidentally" breaks it, leaving the "Old Man" heartbroken.
