Employees at one Pasadena salon want their Santa back.

Someone swiped a 20-foot inflatable Santa from outside Murphy's Retreat on Center Street near Spencer Highway earlier this month. The Grinch struck sometime between 9 and 10:30pm on December 6, while the owner was still there.

Employees say the Santa helped spread Christmas cheer on their corner and was a favorite for kids passing by in cars. They can't believe someone would do such a thing.

Anyone with leads into who swiped this Santa should call Pasadena police.
