It all started when an alarming number of missing packages in a Lake Country neighborhood prompted the community to set in motion a secret operation to catch the Grinch that was stealing their (Christmas) packages, Central Florida13 reported.
The sting led the neighbors to catch the 8-year old (in both photos and video) red handed as she approached their porches and took their parcels.
Police believe the girl was acting alone and will refer the case to the juvenile authorities.
