Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office warns that if you try to steal Christmas they will find you.
With HUGE credit to the SCSO’s Patrol Bureau, the real-life Grinch from December 19, is officially in custody. Bridget Wenzel, DOB 12/29/78, was arrested after deputies recovered ALL the reported stolen holiday lawn decor in her backyard. Unfortunately, she now faces six counts of petit theft.
We hope this teaches Ms. Wenzel a lesson but more than that, we hope she gets the help she needs.
As for Patrol deputies who saved Christmas…. well, we’ll let these photos speak for themselves.
