A real live Grinch is living among us and witnesses are now saying they saw this man climb up and steal the star off the Christmas Tree at the Grove around 3 a.m. on New Year's Day.

According to KTVB a man was seen crawling his way up the Grove Christmas Tree which is located in the Grove Plaza.  When the man got to the top of the tree, the star's light went out and then disappeared with the man.

The picture we have above is the only thing the Boise Police Department have to go on at this time.

Replacing the star would cost around $500.  If you have any information please contact the Boise Police Department at 208-377-6790.
