MT. CARMEL, Ill. (WFIE) - It seems a Grinch has also been causing trouble in Mt. Carmel.

Sandy Keneipp sent us video of the Grinch at their Christmas parade on the previous weekend.
The Grinch was in custody in a cage, but when it was time to put him in handcuffs, he took off running.
It seems he was able to allude the officers, just like a Grinch got away from Sheriff-elect Bruce Vanoven in Gibson County.
People tell us the Grinch has been making rounds in the area. We’re told he’s been caught on security cameras stealing Christmas presents.
