CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

Children in Middle Tennessee can rest easy this holiday season.

Montgomery County deputies arrested a familiar face on Sunday night. The suspect is accused of attempting to steal Christmas.

"Last night we got a tip from an investigator that Grinch was in Montgomery County," said Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson.

Deputies said they received a tip from Cindy Lou who claimed that Mr. Grinch was headed to Clarksville after he couldn't stop Christmas in other cities. Cindy also said Mr. Grinch tells his dog, Max, everything about his plans. 

Police found Max and implanted a tracking device to find the suspect.

"Those tracking devices led police to the Dunbar Cave and we arrested the Grinch without incident," said Sheriff Fuson.

Mr. Grinch's attorney responded to News 2 and said, "This is a complete misunderstanding on the part of the sheriff's office. He merely planned to take trees to his workshop to fix them up there and then bring them back here".

Mr. Grinch remains in jail on a $1 million bond.

There has been no word yet on when he will be in court.

As for Max, he is now stuck in the Montgomery County Animal Shelter.

"If Grinch doesn't get out of jail in three days he'll be ready for adoption," said Sheriff Fuson.

Police said not to worry about Max during Christmas. They will take good care of him while the Grinch remains behind bars. Max will be available for adoption on Thursday after 11 a.m.
