MEDINA, Ohio — Vandals damaged a piece of Hollywood memorabilia housed at a local museum.

Police said the suspects removed a ladder from the back of Cousin Eddie’s RV from “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” at Castle Noel in Medina sometime last week.

They also cracked a tail light and took a side panel.

Police say the owner of the museum will now have security cameras installed as a result of the vandalism.

The museum opened in November 2013.

Props and costumes from nearly every Christmas classic film are on display at the museum. Items include Will Ferrell’s familiar green coat and Buddy the elf suit from the movie “Elf.”

There is also a life-sized recreation of Jim Carrey’s the Grinch, which was built and modeled by the artist who created the actual costume for the movie.
