BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Hours after a man described by police as a Christmas “Grinch” was released from a Florida jail, he is back in the slammer.

The Boyton Beach Police Department says Francis Keller was arrested Sunday for holding up a fast-food restaurant and pointing a gun at patrons. The 56-year-old Keller was charged with armed robbery and armed carjacking.

The alleged robbery occurred just hours after Keller was released from jail on charges that he tried to steal packages from a post office on Friday night. A police statement said Keller was a former postal employee who gained access to the office by using a door code and called him “the Grinch who tried to steal Christmas.”

Keller is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail.
