SEGUIN, TX -- The Seguin Police Department have dubbed him the "Whataburger Grinch."
Who is he? An unidentified suspect who was seen reaching over the counter of a Whataburger restaurant to snag an employee Christmas tree.
The SPD posted an edited "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" themed surveillance video on their Facebook page in hopes of making this Grinch "famous."
See their post below:
The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
Seguin PD needs your help. We are in a pinch.
Identify this What-A-Burger GRINCH!
Hey Facebook Detectives and Whataburger fans, we need your assistance. A Christmas Grinch left Whoville and struck an all-time Texas favorite in town. The theft of a Whataburger Christmas tree occurred on 12/5 at 12:20 am. We’re a bit upset about it cause the Grinch shown on video is most likely snickering at his “well thought-out plan” to steal from Whataburger. Yes we’re being sarcastic...
We’re asking for your assistance in identifying Grinch in this theft. When speaking to Whataburger staff, they told us their employees saved money to buy the tree and made the Christmas ornaments. It’s a shame the Grinch decided to do what he did, but we have no problem arresting this “heartless-soul.”
So, if you know this Grinch, we’d like to speak to him, then arrest him. Seriously. Wrapping our handcuffs around the suspect’s wrists…JUST LIKE 'YOU' LIKE IT. We’ll call ahead to the Guadalupe County Jail to make sure the Grinch’s jumpsuit is extra orange… you know, WHATABURGER orange.
If you have information on this Grinch, please call the police department and speak to Officer Martina Wissmann at 830-379-2123 or contact our Investigations Division. If your tip leads to an arrest of the Grinch, we will throw in a Whataburger gift card. Guaranteed.
Make this Grinch famous.
