Beaufort County sheriff's deputies say eight incidents of vandalism have occured over the past week in Sandy Pointe and The Willows subdivisions.

Hundreds of dollars worth of Christmas decorations were destroyed including 40 candy canes.

Some neighbors say they will not put up any more Christmas decorations.
