Police Saves Christmas for Family Who Had Their Presents Stolen
A mother was devastated when the Christmas gifts she had bought for her three sons were stolen out of her truck just two days before the big day.
Brittney Curry, from North Texas, had just completed her Christmas shopping using a Christmas bonus check. Unfortunately, when she left her truck in a parking lot for a few hours, a Grinch came and stole the bikes, games, shoes, and clothes she had just bought from her truck.
“There was no way we were going to be able to rebuy any of those gifts,” Curry told Fox News. “I was devastated.”
“Who steals that kind of stuff? What kind of heart do you have?” she added.
After breaking the disappointing news to her sons, Curry then contacted police, who told her a group of teens was seen near her truck that day, reported the news station.
When she called the police to follow up next day, however, police surprised the mother and her boys, saying they had three bags of gifts from toys donated to the department for young crime victims.
“It’s nice to be able to have something just good happen,” Officer Bradley Klingberg told Fox News.
“Any time you can go and make a real difference in someone’s life, it feels really good,” Klingberg added.
Curry was extremely grateful for the officers’ act of kindness, who turned a “horrific Christmas” into a different kind of Christmas they will never forget.
“This Christmas will always be remembered. It will always be a story,” she told the news station.
