BRYCEVILLE, Fla. – A Grinch decoration that was stolen from a Nassau County home's Christmas display was returned Monday night.

The 6-foot-tall wood-carved Grinch decoration was taken from the family's home on Trophy Trail in Bryceville the night after the owners put it up.

The family reached out to News4Jax last week about the stolen carving that has sentimental value to them.

A young man had stolen the decoration, but his mother made him return it to the family after seeing the story on the news.

The family decided not to report the young man to the police.
