DARTMOUTH - What a Grinch: Halifax police are searching for a man who allegedly broke into a Dartmouth home last Thursday and took wrapped Christmas gifts and other valuables.

Around 4 p.m. on Dec. 19, police say a man realized his home had been broken into when he returned from work. A review of  surveillance video showed a suspect breaking into the house on Athorpe Drive around 11:20 a.m. and leaving soon after.

Police say the man stole a number of wrapped Christmas gifts, electronics and collectors coins.

The suspect is described as a white man, 20 to 40 years of age, 180 pounds, about six-feet tall, with a mole on his right cheek between his mouth and nose.

He was wearing a blue toque with a Boston Red Sox logo, purple hoodie, black jacket with a gray stripe across the chest, blue jeans and black shoes, according to a release.
