WNYT is reporting a 'Christmas Grinch' has been up to no good in Nisky!

'Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant, around the whole room, and took every present' - The Grinch Who Stole Christmas by Dr. Suess

It may not exactly be breaking and entering, but there is definitely someone acting like the Grinch in Niskayuna. According to News Channel 13, packages have been disappearing from several Niskayuna residences in the area of Ray Street, Union Street and Cornelius Avenue. News 13 says 'Thieves will follow a delivery truck, wait until they leave the area and quickly steal whatever has been left.'

I guess this is one drawback of shopping online. For all the convenience it provides, you need to worry about a 'Grinch' like this ruining Christmas. I just wonder why we should even be worrying about this - there is always someone there to ruin a good thing!

So if you are expecting some Christmas packages today or tomorroe, make sure you are home to get them. You never know when a Grinch will strike!
