NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – The NOPD has arrested a man they say was caught on tape attempting to burglarize a home while wearing a Grinch t-shirt.

Twenty-year-old Jaymalias Falls was caught by a security camera on November 29 attempting to burglarize a house in the 2900 block of Baronne Street.

Falls did not gain entry to that house, but the videotape clearly showed his “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” t-shirt.

Officers caught up with Falls this morning, according to a release by the NOPD. Falls is also a suspect in several other burglaries in the Sixth District.

If you have information about these incidents, the NOPD asks you to contact Detective Jovan Washington or any Sixth District detective at (504) 658-6060.
