SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The Spotswood Police Department pulled off a major raid at Spotswood High School this week that saved Christmas once again for borough residents. Acting on intelligence reports, a team of SWAT Elves led by the department's youngest officer, Trent Powers conducted the raid in the school's boiler room, apprehending four of the biggest Christmas haters around.

The Grinch, Scrooge, Krampas and the Abominable Snowman were all taken into custody without incident. All four are charged with various degrees of naughtiness that range from impersonating Santa, stealing presents, happiness and even snow. Currently, the Grinch and his villain gang are being held at the Spotswood Police Department.

However, the SPD is asking for residents assistance in helping to grow the Grinch's notoriously small heart and bring the holiday spirit to his fellow Christmas haters.
