A real-life Grinch wrecked a Des Moines couple’s Christmas. According to a police report, a couple returned from a family gathering on Christmas Eve to find someone had broken into their home. The thief or thieves took $600 worth of Christmas presents, a laptop, an iPad, a gaming system, an electric guitar and more.
