The “Grinch” has been making an appearance on the Houlton Police Department's Facebook page to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

HPD had some fun with these pictures and captions, saying the Grinch was seen on South Street and taken in.

Houlton Police also had a good sense of humor with this post on their Facebook:
