ST. ANDREWS, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a man convicted of stealing packages delivered to homes before Christmas two years ago has done it again.

News outlets report Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said in a release that 34-year-old Jason Robert Phillips was arrested Thursday and is accused by authorities of being “a Grinch.”

Ezell says Phillips is suspected of stealing packages delivered to homes in St. Andrews and was allegedly filmed by a surveillance camera.

Phillips was convicted in 2016 for stealing packages in December 2015.

He’s charged with four counts of petit larceny and possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. The charges are misdemeanors.

His bond was set at $12,000. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
