Real-life Grinch has change of heart, returns stolen decorations


SYDNEY, Aus. (WTHR) - A Christmas-time grinch has had a change of heart.

An Australian man caught on camera stealing a family's Christmas decorations from their front yard, and just like the grinch in the popular story, he changed his mind.

After the family shared their story (and the surveillance video) with a local TV station, the thief wrote an apology note and brought the decorations back.

The culprit also sent $100 along with the note to help replace the decorations that were taken.
