Mr. Grinch was “arrested” by police for attempting to steal Christmas trees, ornaments, decorations and presents for children.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Mr. Grinch is not the only one with a heart two sizes too small. One store employee in England said “Merry Christmas” by hosing down the homeless with freezing water. Several thieves were even caught on video stealing Christmas gifts. Even Santa Claus is not receiving any love for Christmas 2014, since one “smug” traffic warden fined Santa Claus for a parking violation. To make matters worse, a homeless man famous for his Santa suit was killed in a car accident.
The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office sent a release saying they had 56-year-old Mr. Grinch arrested while he was waiting to steal all the Christmas goodies from the little girls and boys.
“We set up surveillance and were able to spot his dog, Max, who was traveling on the shoulder of Highway 10 between Bogalusa and Franklinton,” said Sheriff Randy Seal. “We secretly placed a microphone on his collar and let him go.”
Mr. Grinch was apparently hiding in the woods near Highway 62, but the wireless plant allowed police to learn of his nefarious plot.
“Thankfully, he went to Grinch who was hiding in the woods near Highway 62. Grinch tells his dog everything, so we were able to listen in on his plans to ruin Christmas,” Seal said.
Police say Mr. Grinch tried to make a run for it when confronted by police officers, but he was arrested after a short foot chase through the woods. Needless to say, Mr. Grinch was surprised the police had caught him.
“How could it be so? It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags,” Grinch exclaimed.
“Washington Parish can now relax and have a very Merry Christmas,” said Seal according to WSFA. “You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch. You really are a heel.”
If it’s not obvious by now, this police release was a light-hearted joke created by the officers at Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office as a parody of the famous Dr. Suess story. While there may be real Grinches out there trying to ruin Christmas 2014, this arrest report is merely a fun flight of fantasy.
