Grinch Burglar caught after stealing and opening child’s Christmas presents ...

by Banana Crumble | Dec 20, 2017

Essex Police Officers have gone above and beyond the call of duty and fully joined in with the real spirit of Christmas.

PC Campling and PC Martin charged and remanded the suspect in custody, before spending time out of their busy schedule to rewrap the presents. The were gifts were then returned to the children they were taken from.

Essex Police’s Grays Local Policing Team shared a photo on Twitter of the two men, standing by a table, personally wrapping all the presents, along with the words: “Grinch Burglar caught after stealing and opening child’s Christmas presents. PC Campling & PC Martin charged and remanded the burglar and then re wrapped and returned the presents in time for Christmas.”

Their kind-hearted actions have been praised by other colleagues at Essex Police on Twitter, with Inspector Rob Brettell saying: “Super proud of the people I serve with – some things in policing simply cannot be measured or shown on a spreadsheet”.

To be burgled is a horrible thing for anyone but for children to have their Christmas Presents taken it must be even worse. Here at Banana Crumble we are really glad that the culprit was caught and at this time of the year would like to thank the Police and all the other emergency services for everything they do for us not just at Christmas but throughout the year. We often hear tales about the police and this one certainly brings a smile to our faces !! Thank You!!


So many ways to say thank you
