SAN PEDRO, CA – Los Angeles County sheriff's authorities are calling a man suspected of stealing packages worth thousands of dollars from people's homes a Grinch.

Sgt. Mark Moffett said Thursday that investigators tracked down 42-year-old Michael Wieczorek during a hunt for the thief who took a package from the porch of a Rancho Palos Verdes home.

Moffett said detectives searched his San Pedro home and found jewelry, toys and other items that had been reported stolen. They included a pair of pajamas underneath the Christmas tree that Wieczorek was going to give his mother.

Detectives said they also uncovered stolen mail -- including Christmas cards -- counterfeit driver's licenses, altered checks and fraudulent tax forms.

Wieczorek was arrested Wednesday. He posted $20,000 bond, and was ordered to appear in court Jan. 10.

He was trying to help them get in touch with their inner Christmas.

That's one way of getting your Xmas present shopping done.

Reminds me of guy on youtube he was explaining how to get free gifts during the holidays, it was more of a comedic approach in the video but he said to watch for post office vehicles and then when the postman walks inside quickly open the vehical and take the packages lol.
