BORGER, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The Hutchinson County Sheriff’s Office said it located The Grinch on Main Street in Borger on Friday, Dec. 3, and due to multiple thefts in the area and his extensive criminal history for stealing Christmas, Mr. Grinch was arrested and taken to the Hutchinson County Jail.
Authorities said The Grinch was charged with criminal trespass, theft of Christmas cheer, attempted theft of Christmas, and possession of candy cane rock substance with a bond set at $150,000. However, he made bail and authorities came across him once again on Saturday, Dec. 4.
