The little Christmas rascal has been getting away with his shenanigans for too long.

A Massachusetts police department is looking to arrest the Elf on the Shelf for his holiday crimes against humanity.

The Bourne Police Department posted a cheeky Facebook post asking the public to "use caution" when it comes to this tiny little trickster.

Wanted Person: Use Caution. Wanted in a "string"of ginger bread house invasions. Known to spread Christmas Cheer and a specialist in covert surveillance. Often seen hiding in high places. Do not approach and especially DO NOT touch as this is known to cause loss of magical abilities to report back to his jolly kingpin!

The weekend post has gotten some social media attention with over 1,000 shares as of Monday. Here is hoping they track down this dangerous criminal and bring him to justice.

Here are the mugshot pictures they took of this nefarious, yet incredibly jollly, little criminal:
