Geocache Description:

Crime Scene Investigations, Dept.

Crime Scene: Who Household
Date: Whosday, December 24 (Christmas Eve)
Time: 21:50

It was past dark-thirty when a glass tree ornament rolled into little Cindy Lou Who's bedroom, awakening her. Rubbing sleep from her eyes she picked up the ornament and entered the family's living room to find an intruder dressed as Santa Claus attempting to push their Christmas tree up the chimney. "Why," she enquired, "why are you taking our tree? Why?"

Witness Cindy Lou Who, who is no more than 2.

Who-ville Police artist rendering of tree theft.

The red and white clad figure replied, there was a burnt out lightbulb on the tree, on one side, and he was taking it back to his work shop to effect repairs. With that, he sent her back to bed with a glass of water and proceded to clear out.

Other Whos would wake during the evening to find eveything gone, down to their last can of Who Hash and finding crumbs insufficent for even their mice.

Who-ville Police Department have advised all Whos to remain indoors and keep watch on their fireplace flues. WPD are on the watch for an overburdened sleigh, ridden by a figure dressed as Santa Claus, being drawn by a single dog of unknown breed. Citizens with any information are urged to contact WPD investigators.
