The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is an 8-Year-Old in Florida

The Grinch who stole Christmas is an 8-year-old girl in Clermont, Florida, seen here grabbing someone's packages from their porch.

Everyone is familiar with the Grinch and we come into contact with him at work, school, and various family members that want to rob you of your Christmas goodness.  But now, the Grinch has  popped up in a much smaller version than we would have ever suspected.

A small community in Clermont, Florida, had been noticing their packages were not arriving on time for the holiday.  But then someone noticed that the packages had indeed made it to their doorstep, there was just a little interception made by an 8-year-old girl neighbor.

That’s right! A video caught a little girl that had been on an ongoing heist of possible Christmas gifts on her neighbor’s porches.  Neighbors started to suspect there was a thief on the loose stealing their stuff, so they set up a video sting catching her in the act.  Jessica Araujo runs a business out of her home and had items stolen.  She wants something done about the little girl.

“We want something done, in the form of the parents stepping up to the plate, taking accountability and saying, ‘We’re sorry this happened to you and the other neighbors,’ maybe even having the child come over and apologize,” Araujo told Central Florida News.

The mother and child were interviewed by police, but the little girl only admitted to one package that she grabbed on a dare.  There has not been any charges or penalty against them at the time of the report.  But later, neighbors heard the child screaming in what sounded like a severe butt beating with a belt…sike! But they wish that would’ve happened.

Check out the report.
