Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Cornelius Police Department Seeks Help in Locating Christmas Wreath Thief

CORNELIUS, N.C. — As the holiday season approaches, the festive spirit is marred by the actions of a “Grinch” in the Charlotte area. Cornelius Police Department is now seeking the public’s assistance in finding a woman who allegedly stole two Christmas wreaths from EDU Healthcare earlier this month. In an effort to engage the community and generate leads, the police department shared surveillance footage of the incident on their Facebook page.

The Facebook post, written in a playful manner, read, “Everyone at EDU Healthcare liked Christmas a lot. But the Grinch in a black cap and jacket, did not!” The authorities have identified the suspect as 36-year-old Ashley Armstrong, who is now wanted for larceny. However, instead of seeking retribution, the police department has a different approach in mind.

In a surprising twist, Cornelius police have a present of their own for Armstrong. The department has issued a warrant for her arrest, which they humorously refer to as a “present.” The hope is that this action will not only bring justice but also help to grow the heart of the “Grinch” by three sizes.

Detectives are urging anyone with information about Armstrong’s whereabouts to come forward and contact Cornelius police at 704-892-7773. The department is confident that with the community’s help, they can bring a peaceful conclusion to this Christmas theft.

As the investigation unfolds, the incident serves as a reminder of the importance of holiday security. With Christmas just around the corner, businesses and homeowners are advised to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to protect their decorations and property.

The Cornelius Police Department’s proactive approach in addressing this holiday theft has garnered attention and support from the community.
