By Joseph J. Kolb ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (Reuters) – A modern-day Grinch made off with more than $1 million in jewels from a store in a chic Santa Fe marketplace during the city’s annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony, police said on Tuesday. Santa Fe Police detective Abe Maes said the suspect was caught on surveillance video looking into the front windows of the Divas Diamonds and Jewels store last Friday during the tree lighting, which draws hundreds of visitors each year to the Santa Fe Plaza. “It looks like the male suspect cased the store then took advantage of the crowds during the tree lighting ceremony,” Maes said, adding that the man took jewelry from a display case.
