St. Lucie County Sheriff Mascara prevents Grinch from stealing Christmas from 9-year-old River Park girl (unincorporated St. Lucie County)
St. Lucie County Sheriff's deputies are looking for the Grinch who tried to steal Christmas from a 9-year-old River Park girl in unincorporated St. Lucie County.

The Grinch, identity unknown, stole Kylee Stevens' brand new bike, which she received as a Christmas present, from the front porch of her home, at 105 Beach Ave., in the unincorporated River Park neighborhood (http://goo.gl/maps/O3dRw), on Christmas Day, according to Sheriff Ken J. Mascara.

"When I read the incident report, I was appalled that someone would victimize a little girl on Christmas morning," Sheriff Mascara said. "When I shared the story with my command staff, we agreed that there was only one solution: We had to reach out to Santa to get the bike replaced."

This morning, Sheriff Mascara, filling in for Santa, gave Kylee a brand new bicycle.

The Grinch, foiled in his pathetic attempt to ruin a little girl's Christmas, remains at large.
