Grinches Stole Family's Christmas, Police Do Something Amazing

Just before Christmas Eve, burglars stole all of the presents at the Szeto family residence in Fremont's Ardenwood neighborhood. Officers responded to the burglary during their midnight shift on Wednesday. They found that all of the Christmas gifts for the family's four children were stolen.

In a Facebook post, the department wrote “They (were) very sad to see the young children so visibly upset and knew they had to do something."

Before their midnight shift had started Officer L. Kennedy put on her Santa Claus hat and chipped in for presents on Christmas Eve. The officers loaded up a "patrol sleigh" and surprised the entire family for Christmas.

The children received several gifts including a lightsaber and a Razor scooter. One of the children told the officers, “This was the best Christmas ever!”

Little Naomi wrote in a card to the officers “Thank you for making our house feel safe again. Your jobs are so scary! It’s nice to know that we can depend on the police.”

The officers' only wish was to restore hope and happiness for the family.
