ABINGTON (CBS) – The power of guilt has driven a thief to return a stolen holiday decoration in Abington.

Abington resident Scott Leines puts out more than 100 handmade wooden characters on his lawn on Lake Street each year, but over the last couple of weeks he’s noticed some of his characters were stolen.

“It’s kind of frustrating,” Leines told WBZ-TV on Wednesday. “You put it out for everybody. It’s for myself, it’s for my family, but it’s for everyone who comes out and enjoys it during the holiday season and they’ve just taken it away from everybody and it isn’t fair.”
