MAUMEE, OHIO (WTOL) - Maumee police are searching for a real-life 'Grinch' after a man robbed a Salvation Army bell ringer of her donation kettle.
It happened outside the Anderson's General Store in Maumee around 6:30 p.m. yesterday.
Just before the man grabbed the kettle, police said he shouted that he hated the bell ringers and hated Christmas. The volunteer worker struggled with the man over the kettle, but he got away with the donations after pushing the worker. The man then placed the kettle and tripod base into a 1999 black Ford pick-up truck, which was reported stolen the night before.
Police recovered the truck later that night. Citizens found the empty kettle and tripod Sunday afternoon. Police said they are now processing the items for evidence.
The victim stated the suspect is a white male in his 40s, wearing a green hat, green shirt and a grey hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. He is 5'2" to 5'4", 200 to 240 lbs., with a scruffy beard and moustache, and brown hair with some grey in it. Anyone with information should call Maumee Police at (419) 897-7000
Sounds like they should check the local E.L.F. office.
Our government is the biggest grinch they steal from us all the time.
Could it be a large elf who went over to the dark side?
Around here, those buckets are attached with a padlock. Apparently this poor woman wasn’t so lucky.
5’2”, 240 pounds? Look for a huge green bowling ball!
No kidding! No wonder the guy had a bad attitude!
My family and I used to go to the Anderson's General Store in Maumee to do our Christmas shopping every year.

You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
You really are a heel.
You’re as cuddly as a cactus,
You’re as charming as an eel.
You’re a bad banana
With a greasy black peel.
You’re a monster, Mr. Grinch.
Your heart’s an empty hole.
Your brain is full of spiders,
You’ve got garlic in your soul.
I wouldn’t touch you, with a
thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.
You’re a vile one, Mr. Grinch.
You have termites in your smile.
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile.
Given the choice between the two of you
I’d take the seasick crocodile.
You’re a foul one, Mr. Grinch.
You’re a nasty, wasty skunk.
Your heart is full of unwashed socks
Your soul is full of gunk.
The three words that best describe you,
are, and I quote: “Stink. Stank. Stunk.”
You’re a rotter, Mr. Grinch.
You’re the king of sinful sots.
Your heart’s a dead tomato splot
With moldy purple spots,
Your soul is an apalling dump heap overflowing
with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable
Mangled up in tangled up knots.
You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch.
With a nauseous super-naus.
You’re a crooked jerky jockey
And you drive a crooked horse.
You’re a three decker saurkraut and toadstool
With arsenic sauce.
This is a memorable guy.
Somebody has to know him.
We will have to try and keep this near the top of the post.
You just dont steal from the Salvation Army!
Every year, like clockwork, we get the same Christmas stories...
1. Homeless eating Turkey at the shelter....telling us their sob stories.
2. “Hard luck” sob stories (illness, job loss, house burning down)
3. Secret Santas
4. Soldiers saying “Hi mom!”
5. MSM bitching how bad the economy is or how greedy we are.
6. Pope waving.
Obama voter looking for free bees.
