A young family from the QLD town of Harristown have had a sad kick off to Christmas after thieves stole all their presents from under their tree.
Queensland Police have said that sometime between 8pm and 10pm on Saturday night, December 15, when the family were out, their Blackdown Street home was broken into and their Christmas stolen, with every single present taken.
Police are appealing for anyone in the local area who may have noticed anyone suspicious or anything ‘out of the ordinary’ in the Harristown area to contact them.
Senior Sergeant Greg Wheeler, Officer-In-Charge of Toowoomba Station said it was disappointing that people would steal Christmas presents.
“Christmas is a very special time of the year for most of us and to have someone break-into your home and take the presents that you have carefully selected and wrapped for your loved ones must be so disappointing.
“I urge anyone who has any information in relation to this incident to contact police and urge residents to remain vigil this holiday season, keeping an eye not only on their property but their neighbours too.”
