A lot of Christmas presents didn't arrive in the Bangor area thanks to a grinch who struck in several towns.
Sometime between Christmas eve and Christmas morning someone opened mailboxes and stole the contents. They were seeking small packages or mail containing gift cards or cash. Margo Diaz of Alton was one of the victims. She knew something was wrong when she noticed all of the mailboxes opened at the end of her road. Diaz soon learned that a package sent by her sister is among those stolen. The crook or crooks struck in Alton, Old town, Hudson, Glenburn and perhaps in other communities. Anyone who saw anything suspicious or experienced a theft themselves is urged to contact the Penobscot County Sheriff's Department.
