SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio (WOIO) - Yes, he still very much is a mean one. The Grinch, that is.
Authorities in Stark and Summit counties joined forces ahead of the weekend to spread Christmas cheer and jolly laughter.
Their attempt at a humor included a play-by-play of the “investigation” to locate and arrest the protagonist from the 1966 holiday classic.
Officials began the search for the Mount Crumpit resident for the following charges, according to a Dec. 9 Facebook post from the Stark County Sheriff’s Office:
- Breaking and Entering
- Grand Larceny
Officers were able to locate and take the bad banana with a greasy black peel into custody on Dec. 16, according to a Facebook post from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
Mr. Grinch was transported to the Stark County Jail for booking, where he will be separated by thirty-nine-and-a-half feet from others.
“Despite this one staring down with a Grinchy frown, we could not let him disrupt the warm lighted windows across our towns,” Stark County Sheriff George T. Maier said in a comment.
