The Grinch was out in full force in the Keys, but he wasn't stealing Christmas.
Instead, he was checking traffic speeds through the school zone at Stanley Switlik Elementary School around mile marker 49 in Marathon. Speeders going no more than 5 mph over the 20 mph limit got the option of a ticket or an onion. Obviously, most opt for the onion.
Chief Lou Caputo, third in line at the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, played the role of the Grinch, handing out about 10 onions.
He has been donning the outfit — while operating a radar gun — this time of year since 2000.
