WELLSVILLE, Ohio - Wellsville police are looking for a Grinch who tried to steal Christmas in the village.

Committee chair and city councilwoman Rosie Goss says they're raising money to offer at reward for their safe return.

The life-size gingerbread men and women and candy canes were exclusively constructed for the Village by a tech instructor at Columbiana County Career & Technical Center in Lisbon, Ohio.

The committee collected $1,000 to deck out its display for the first time this year.

"Just to see somebody do that, why would you want to be that mean," Goss said.

In addition to the six foot figures, Goss says a set of lollipop lights and two wooden Santas were taken.

The decorations were supposed to be part of the backdrop of the Village's Holiday Light Up Night on December 6th.
