"Grinches who stole Halloween" apologize

SECANE, Pa. - October 20, 2010

A security camera recorded two young women stealing the decorations at around 1:00 a.m. on October 10th from Cocco's Pizza shop in Upper Darby.

When confronted, police say, the women denied being the thieves.

However, a few days later they saw themselves on TV.

They quickly returned the items and tearfully apologized.

One is a college student, the other is a Marine. The police had labeled the pair the "Grinches who stole Halloween."

Store owner Mike Cocco says a lesson has been learned and he won't press charges.
