Grinch Takes Food, Walkers From Retirement Home

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.
