OMG PD: Grinch Edition

The holiday season doesn't stop unusual crimes around the Greater Philadelphia Area.

Grinch Strikes Roxborough-ville: According to a report from Roxborough Patch, police had several reports of packages being stolen from doorsteps in December. There were four reported incidents of packages being taken while homeowners were out, including an incident in which 100 wooden arrows were reported taken. Check out Roxborough Patch for the full story.

Not Really in the Spirit of the Season: According to a report from Marple-Newtown Patch, an area florist reported to police that a customer stole a santa decoration from the store and left without paying for it, which really seems like an instance of the Christmas spirit going a little too far. Check out Marple-Newtown Patch for the story.

One-Way Ticket to the Naughty List: According to Springfield Patch, an area resident reported that someone stole her wallet from her purse while she was at the mall taking a child to see Santa Claus. Check out the full story here.

W.E., if you ever find yourself in that situation again, CALL THE POLICE!!! While the store won't help you, the presence of an LEO in that situation tends to make them much more agreeable to your requests. (based on personal experience with fender bender in store parking lot with security cameras)
