TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST..."Grinchy mom:" A mom in Arizona is accused of stealing money her own children received for Christmas. 31-year old Amanda Sue Rick doesn't have custody of her kids. The kids' grandparents called 911 and said they'd given $10 dollars to each of their four grandchildren. They claimed Rick and her boyfriend showed up to see the kids and took $30 bucks total - $10 each from three of the children.

The Mohave Sheriff's Department says Rick claims the children gave her the money so she could get a hotel room. Rick and her boyfriend had outstanding warrants. Both were arrested on several misdemeanor warrants and a felony for possession of drug paraphernalia.
