You've heard of the Grinch that stole Christmas, but in North Carolina, it was some kids who stole the Grinch.
The stuffed Dr. Seuss character was part of a display outside some stores in the town of Southern Pines.
The kids who stole the statue didn't realize who was watching. A camera at the store next door caught them all on tape and then police posted the crime on You Tube.
Among those who saw the video were the boys' parents. The kids won't be criminally charged, but they were grounded.
