This real-life Grinch stole a Christmas tree from a Texas Whataburger


It’s one thing to take Christmas ornaments from the Whos of Whoville, but when you mess with Whataburger, that’s another story.

According to police, somebody broke into a Seguin Whataburger around 12:20 a.m. on Tuesday, stealing a small Christmas tree and ornaments from the counter and running out of the store.

The Seguin Police Department posted the video on Facebook and is asking for help identifying the person who stole the items:

According to the post, the property was worth less than $100 -- but it’s priceless for the Whataburger employees who saved their own money to buy the tree and made the Christmas ornaments. 

Police said anybody with information that leads to an arrest will get a Whataburger gift card.
