How the Crack Head Saved Christmas: Befuddled Burglar Decorates Victim's House for the Holidays

"Who wants to have fun tonight in Whoville? I'll bring the bath salts..."

It seems you really can save a Grinch's heart during the holiday season!

Or at least a mixed-up, wannabe burglar zonked out of his mind on bath salts! A man broke into a house in Vandalia, OH, we can only guess with the intent to rob the home. However, it appears the man, 44-year-old Terry Trent, must have taken some inspiration from copies of Martha Stewart's Living and Better Homes and Gardens found around the house, as he decided to go on a bit of a decorating kick. He began taking out all of the family's Christmas decorations stored in a closet and putting them up for a cheerful Yuletide display!

When the family returned home a few hours later, they found Trent lounging on the family sofa, watching television and playing with toys! Needless to say, the home owners were more than a little shocked, but now they won't have to worry about putting up those pesky decorations this year. The man apologized for startling them and left, but was caught by police moments later.

Nothing was missing from the home, so maybe this is a case of the "Reverse Grinch", breaking into stranger's homes to spread joy and cheer! I'll toast to that! Merry Christmas, one and all!
