In the middle of summer, a Grinch is roaming Philadelphia's streets.
While Mary Harmer worked the red kettle for the Salvation Army's "Christmas in July" campaign July 29, someone stole her bicycle.
The bike was parked and locked only 7 feet away from where Harmer, 27, stood in front of the Loews Hotel, at 12th and Market streets, she said. But with her back turned, she didn't see the man who came by, cut the bike's lock and rode off.
The theft was recorded by a Loews security camera, but that hasn't led to an arrest, said Harmer, an events and marketing assistant with the Salvation Army.
