WATERFORD TWP. (WWJ) - Police are looking for help from the public to identify a grinch at large in Oakland County. 

According to investigators, at around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2019, a man stole several gift items from a vehicle parked in the parking lot of Meijer on Highland Rd. (M-59) at Pontiac Lake Rd. in Waterford Township.

The suspect — described by police as a white male with an average build  blond hair, a mustache and goatee — removed several gifts from the backseat of an unlocked vehicle and put them in his shopping cart.
