MOUNT WASHINGTON — There’s a Grinch every Christmas and, this year, he showed up in two minors to steal packages from porches.
Two juveniles, both 15, were charged with theft by unlawful taking after taking packages off the porches of residents’ homes in the Bethel Branch neighborhood in Mount Washington.
According to Det. Dan Kelty, the minors would wait until UPS, FedEx or USPS would drop off the package to see if anyone immediately picked it up.
The total value of the items taken equaled less than $500.
