Beware of seasonal Grinches

By
From page A6 | December 04, 2012 |

Three special gifts purchased by our daughter for her niece, our granddaughter, were placed on our North Davis front porch about 8:30 a.m. on the Thursday before Thanksgiving. In the less than the 15 minutes it took her to get home and call me to request that I retrieve them, they’d vanished!

They were wrapped and in a plastic grocery bag so the thief didn’t know what they were. We hoped that once he or she did know, a conscience would take over and the gifts would be quietly returned; but no such thing happened. (Maybe they were donated to a good cause.)

We were all dumbfounded at the gall it took to go across our driveway and up stairs to swipe the bag during a busy time of the morning with neighbors coming and going, with landscapers working next door and contractors/laborers across the street. (None said they witnessed anything.) It was sad for the 3-year-old and costly and frustrating for our daughter to replace the gifts.

Davis police recently warned residents about a burglary spree. I guess we also need to be extra-wary and vigilant about having anything left on our porches this holiday season and watch out for neighbors who might get a delivery or friendly drop-off of anything.
