Police buy Christmas gifts for New Jersey family after their presents were stolen

Florence Township Police Department saved Christmas for a New Jersey family after their gifts were stolen.

Florence Township Police Department Chief Brian Boldizar posted a message on Facebook describing the incidents that followed a gift-filled car being stolen from outside a local convenience store.

“On Saturday, a family from Florence Township had the unfortunate experience of having their vehicle stolen… to make this experience even worse, the family had most of their Christmas gifts inside of the vehicle,” Boldizar wrote. “During this time when most families are preparing to celebrate Christmas, this family not only had to figure out how they were going to get from place to place without a vehicle, they also had to figure out how they were going to get Christmas gifts for their family.”

The officers, including many who were off-duty, delivered the gifts to the family on Christmas Eve in order to make sure they were able to have a “special” holiday.

“I feel that it is very important that you know what your community’s police officers are doing out there and to acknowledge the work of these officers,” Boldizar wrote. “This job is a lot more than just writing tickets and arresting people. It is about taking care of our community.”

Boldizar continued: “Once again, I feel privileged to be the Chief of Police of such a great organization and community. Everyone from the command staff to the officers, to the administrative staff put 100 percent into their job and it shows.”

Florence Township Police Department Chief Brian Boldizar concluded his message by noting that he needed to end his Facebook message “or my kids will be upset with me when Santa doesn’t come to our house because he saw a light on.”

Fox News reports that the Officers eventually identified the suspect who stole the vehicle through witness statements and surveillance videos, according to FTPD. Charges were filed and the suspect remained at large as of Christmas morning.
