TOLEDO, OH (WPVI) -- A weed that grew into a Charlie Brown-like Christmas decoration in Toledo, Ohio, and went viral on the internet, got the ax from a Grinch.
A local TV station caught the culprit stealing a wreath from the makeshift holiday monument.
Someone first put tinsel on the four-foot high weed.
That inspired residents to add Christmas ornaments, a Santa Claus and other decorations.
Then the Grinch showed up and spoiled what had become something of a community celebration.
A scout troop cleared the site the day after the theft, even yanking out the weed.
One resident said he hoped a weed would sprout again on the spot.
