Philadelphia police say woman is charged with stealing Christmas decorations from house

Police say they've caught a Grinch who was captured on surveillance video stealing Christmas decorations outside a south Philadelphia house last month.

Authorities released surveillance video — complete with cartoon images from Dr. Seuss' "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" — of two people taking decorations from the house about 2:15 a.m. Nov. 26.

Police say 45-year-old Marie Amari was arrested at her nearby home on Saturday, and the stolen decorations were found inside. She is charged with theft and related offenses.

A home telephone phone listing for Amari could not be located and she could not immediately be reached for comment Monday.

Police are still looking for a second suspect.
