MAUMEE, OHIO (FOX19) - Police in northern Ohio are searching for a real-life 'Grinch' accused of stealing a Salvation Army kettle right in front of a volunteer bell-ringer.
It happened outside the Anderson's General Store in Maumee around 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
Just before the man grabbed the kettle, police say 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 had been 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.
