Philadelphia police video shows grinches taking decorations

PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia police have released surveillance video — complete with cartoon images from Dr. Seuss' "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" — of two people stealing decorations outside a house last month.

Police released the video Thursday because they've been unable to locate or identify a portly woman in a white hooded jacket approaching the house about 2:15 a.m. Nov. 26.

The video shows her returning about an hour later -- this time with a male companion -- to steal more decorations, but leaving a pile of faux gifts on the home's front stoop.

The video on the city police YouTube channel includes captions illustrated with images from the animated TV special, including one of the Grinch using a magnet to pull nails from a fireplace mantle so he can steal Christmas stockings.
