Bath Salts Change Grinch’s Heart

Then he got an idea! An awful idea! The Grinch got a wonderful, awful idea!

From the New York Daily News
Snorting bath salts put one Ohio crook in the holiday spirit, police say.

Cops in Vandalia, north of Dayton, say Terry Trent, 44, was high on the designer drug when he broke into a family’s home, put up some Christmas decorations and then plopped down on a couch to watch television, local station WHIO reported.

An 11-year-old boy who lives in the house found the strung-out stranger and called his mother, Tamara Henderson, who was at a neighbor’s house. She said, “What do you mean a man is in our house? You don’t know if he has a gun or if he has a knife?” the station reported.

Henderson called 911, and Trent was arrested without incident. Cops say he was armed with a pocket knife.

But Henderson suspects the decorating bandit was just looking for a festive spot to soak in his buzz.
“The candle was lit on the coffee table, the television was on and very loud,” she told the station.

“He had said to [my son] ,’I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I’ll get my things and go.’ ”

Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a jar of illicit bath salts or a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

And what happened then? Well, in Whoville they say
That the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day!

He just better be thankful his heart didn’t explode.
