The Grinches That Tried to Steal Christmas (Allegedly)
You know those people that police warn you about every Christmas? The thieves who will break into your car and steal your gifts unless you lock your stuff in the trunk or cover them with something?
Well, Richmond County authorities busted three of those guys this week, just as Christmas approached.
Daniel Denny, 17 (top), Scott Tavarez, 21 (middle), and Gregory Bentley, 21 (bottom), were each charged Wednesday with five counts of entering a vehicle to commit theft. They were arrested and booked into the Richmond County Jail.
We don't know what they were going after, but it certainly would have ruined someone's holiday if they had taken it. Perhaps the judicial system can show them the error of their ways (and, like the fictional Grinch, make their hearts grow three sizes.)
