The scene of the crime was in San Matteo, California
According to police, the victim was running errands at the Bridgepointe Shopping Center after getting his tree on Friday. Around 5:20 p.m., the thief, which police described as “Mr. Grinchmas” in a social media post, pulled up next to the victim’s vehicle and cut the ropes holding the tree on the roof.
Video then shows the suspect taking the tree off the victim’s SUV and placing it into the back of their vehicle. The suspect’s vehicle appears to be a white SUV.
“Thankfully, Christmas spirit is still alive because the victim was able to get a replacement tree. But, this does put us in a position to remind you, there are thieves out there looking to take advantage, especially during the Christmas season,” police said in a statement.
Police urged shoppers this holiday season to avoid leaving packages in their vehicles. For shoppers running errands and getting a tree, the department urges them to save their visit to the tree lot for the end.
