BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man is being accused of being a Christmas Grinch after authorities say he broke into a post office and tried to steal packages.

Francis Keller, 56, was arrested by the Boynton Beach Police Department and charged with burglary. Police say they found him inside a post office work room using scissors to open packages.

Police said Keller, a former postal employee for 30 years, gained entry using an old security code for the door.
