CHICO, Calif. -

The "Pumpkin Bandit" is back.

It's become something of a Halloween tradition in Chico.

For the 4th consecutive year decorated pumpkins are showing up in front of the Root family home on Fair St.

The pumpkin decorator takes pumpkins from fence posts in the front yard, and returns them decorated a couple days later.

Among the pumpkins this year, Snoopy and a Chico High cheerleader.

Just who's behind the caper remains a mystery.
