NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A Grinch, who New Orleans police say tried to steal stuff near Christmas, has time to reflect on a change of heart.

He is now in police custody.

Wednesday morning, NOPD arrested Jaymalias Falls, 20, for attempted simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and two counts of illegal possession of stolen things.

On November 29, police say Falls attempted to burglarize a residence in the 2900 block of Baronne.

He wasn't able to get inside, but he was captured on video at the scene wearing a "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" T-shirt.

Falls is also considered a suspect in additional burglaries that have occurred in the Sixth District.

If you have information about this incident, please contact Detective Jovan Washington or any Sixth District detective at 504-658-6060.
