TOWN OF RUSSELL, WI (WTAQ) - The Grinch That Stole Christmas showed up early in north central Wisconsin.
Authorities said about $8,000 worth of holiday decorations were stolen in the past month from a semi-truck parked in the Lincoln County town of Russell.
The trailer had materials for making wreaths and ribbons. Its owner said the unit was not locked -- and it was parked at two different spots around Bloomville around the time the theft occurred.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Lincoln County CrimeStoppers program.
