A few weeks before Christmas last month, a Grinch-like thief broke into a parking garage on the 400 block of Ford Road in St. Louis Park.
He or she proceeded to break into and ransack four cars.
The owners of two of the targeted cars told St. Louis Park police officers they couldn't find anything missing. One car had its dashboard pried apart and its radio ripped out.
But in the last car, thieves stole a $100 tool set, a $30 mini pool table, a $20 throw blanket, and several wrapped Christmas presents that were kept in the back seat.
The building's managers told police they did not have any security cameras watching the garage.
