Grinch Lady Stole Packages From Porches, Ruining Xmas For Many Families

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Newport Beach, Calif., said they arrested a woman who was allegedly stealing Christmas packages from front porches.


Police said Melanie Kathleen Astin, 42, is facing grand theft charges after allegedly stealing several packages left by FedEx and UPS delivery drivers, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday."


When I`m expecting a package from UPS I look out the window a dozen times, and I`m as excited as a school girl who just bought a new Justin Bieber CD when I finally open the package.

I would be crushed if a package was stolen from my front porch, especially at Christmas time. Melanie is a Grinch who has ruined Christmas for over a dozen families.

I have seen a pic of Melanie and she is ten times uglier than the Grinch, no wonder she has resorted to a life of crime. I hope she has a rotten Christmas behind bars.
