Police in Massachusetts use 'Grinch' to send residents holiday message

HOUSTON -- It's video you have to see to believe. Police caught a Grinch -- quite literally -- stealing gifts from a home in Massachusetts, and the arrest was captured on camera.

The Dartmouth Police Department posted this video on its Facebook page, and it had us all flipping out.

Could it be real?!

Sad to report it's not. But it gave us and the police department's Facebook followers quite the chuckle.

The police department made the video to wish residents a happy holidays and to remind everyone that officers will be out on the streets making sure they all have a safe, Grinch-free Christmas.
