Paw & Order: The Case of the Christmas Lights Vandal

Offbeat - Inside Edition Staff

It was a peculiar case of Christmastime vandalism. Someone, or something, was chewing up a New Jersey town's holiday display. But who was the Grinch taking a bite out of Christmas? All eyes pointed to something with teeth. Police in Sea Girt, N.J., rounded up the usual suspects, but none were squealing. There was later a break in the case when a shutterbug caught the perp red-pawed. The police department charged a squirrel with criminal mischief. The bushy-tailed rodent is currently out on bail.
