That ever-popular Elf on the Shelf has landed himself in a bit of hot water. A familiar face this time of year, the Elf on the Shelf visits girls and boys in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Some even report back to Santa Claus about whether they've been naughty or nice.
This particular Elf on the Shelf has been a bit naughty, it seems.
Police in Bourne, Massachusetts say the Elf on the Shelf is wanted in "a string of gingerbread house invasions and is known to be a specialist in covert surveillance.
Anyone apprehending the Elf on the Shelf is warned not to touch the little red-dressed being--because it can result in the loss of his magical powers.

Kudos to the P.D. for their sense of humor and grown-up fun with the Elf on the Shelf. They've no doubt made a wealth of adults smile.
