Vermont Grinch takes food, walkers from adult community

The Associated Press

PITTSFORD, Vermont — Residents of an adult living community in Vermont awoke Christmas morning to find that a Grinch-y thief or thieves had stolen food, gifts and walkers overnight.

Vermont State Police say the National Church Residences Village Manor in Pittsford was hit sometime Thursday by a thief or thieves who pinched Christmas cookies, salad, several turkeys, frozen chicken, loaves of bread, canned vegetables and 10 pounds of potatoes. Also taken were Christmas CDs, puzzles, a television, stereo and 10 walkers.

The burglary didn't stop Christmas from coming, though: Police say the community rallied around the Manor's 30 residents and supplied them with enough food for a Christmas feast and meals into next week.
