Someone did his or her best impression of the Grinch this past Christmas.

According to a Juneau Police Department press release, someone stole a gold-plated chalice, a silver-plated mass kit and a silver-plated rosary from the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on either Dec. 24 or 25, 2017. There is no additional information available on the identity of the suspect, according to the release.
