SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The Grinch and his Christmas-hating gang were poised to ruin the holidays for the borough. That is until Blue Santa and his SWAT Elves saved the day. However, the Spotswood Police Department didn't stop there. In the true spirit of the holiday season, Blue Santa and his SWAT Elves tried to bring the Christmas spirit to the Grinch, Krampas, Scrooge and the Abominable Snowman last night.

The Grinch and his gang were taken on a tour of Spotswood where they were greeted by residents full of holiday cheer in an attempt to grow the mean one's too-small heart. He is after all more than 800 years old and needs a bit of a reminder now that Cindy Lou is all grown up.

Their mission was a success as children of all ages and grownups too stopped by to bring the Grinch and his gang some holiday cheer. They received candy canes, cards and more from folks that weren't bothered at all by the chilly December evening as they poised for pictures and exchanged holiday greetings with neighbors, friends and classmates.

In the spirit of Cindy Lou Who, the Grinch was once again reminded that the holiday doesn't come from the mall. "Perhaps, Christmas means just a little bit more!"
