Two Grinches Arrested for Destroying Christmas

Lynn Haven police say they've arrested another suspect in that Christmas decoration vandalism spree last month.

Eighteen-year-old Jonathon Schelfout is facing felony criminal mischief charges.

He's the second suspect arrested in connection with a rash of decoration destruction in the North Ridge, Mowat Highlands and Panama Country club neighborhoods.

Authorities say the vandals trashed almost $3,000 worth of Christmas displays at 19 different homes, maybe more. They got a break in the case after one witness wrote down the license plate number of one of the suspect's car.

That suspect was 17-year-old Greg Weintritt. He too is facing the criminal mischief charges.

Police say they are considering charges against several other suspects.
