The Grinch Arrested In Escambia County; Held Without Bond Until After Christmas

December 24, 2021

“Christmas has been saved!” — that’s the word from the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office after they arrested the Grinch in their parking lot.

“Rudolph found the Grinch lurking in a parking lot dressed as Santa this morning and called us immediately,” the ECSO said. “We hope he thinks through his actions, and his heart will grow three sizes.”

The Grinch is being held without bond until December 26. According to records, he is from a cave on Mount Crumpit, a steep mountain just north of Whoville.  The Grinch has a criminal history of trying to steal Christmas that dates back to 1957.

He was taken into custody by Deputy Howard Enderson of the Escambia County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse.

    He’ll be released on bond in January and be right back again at it next year. Whatever happened to being tough on crime? Give him 20 years.

    I’m so glad they caught him before Christmas. This ole grinch has been all over Pensacola stealing all the joy that comes with this time of year. When I was out shopping last week, some of the big name stores did not have any Christmas decorations up, and not playing any Christmas music.
    Well done ECSO, lock him up for good!!
    Many Blessings and Merry Christmas to all!

    I just want to say Thank You to Rudolph, Deputy Ederson, and all the Escambia County Police Dept. for handling this is such a speedy manner. I hope Grinch finds the love of Christmas while in the joint.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    Oh, Thank Goodness! Rudolph was definitely on his hooves and very aware of his surroundings, wasn’t he? Thanks, Deputy Enderson, for nabbing him and putting him where he needs to be until all festivities are behind us!
    Merry Christmas to All!
