GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — A sinister suspect has left his hometown of Whoville and has set his sights on Greenville this Christmas, reeking havoc on the community as it prepares for the upcoming holidays.

The mean Mr. Grinch is robbing and stealing the joy from shoppers and homeowners across the region. The city along with the Greenville Police Department wants citizens to be aware that there are things they can do to protect themselves from the Grinch and others who are up to no good. The campaign is working to engage the entire community, no matter how small.

“This is a character that everybody can relate to,” says Greenville Police Public Information Officer Kristen Hunter. “It’s a character that we can use to reach a wide audience and really get those safety tips across.”

The Grinch will likely be sneaking around Greenville for the entire month of December and can be tracked online as well. For more information on how you can protect yourself, click here.
