Cleveland police scored one against the Grinch Monday as they helped a family who had wrapped Christmas gifts stolen from their home.

Early Monday morning, a family reported a burglary at their home. Among the stolen items were wrapped Christmas gifts.

P.O. Freese could tell that the victim was devastated and concerned about how she was going to make Christmas happen for her children. P.O. Freese later made the other police officers on night shift aware of the incident. 5th District night shift officers decided that even though the Grinch got away with some presents, he was not going to take Christmas from this family.

With the help of the Cleveland Police Foundation, the officers donned a Santa hat and donated a $100 Toys R Us gift card to the family so they could replace the stolen presents.
