Children as young as 5 & 9 years old have reportedly broken into their neighbors home and took Christmas presents. They broke into the home using a gift card….can you believe this? If those children had been raised by my mother they’d begin crying & shaking inconsolably at the mere site of a Christmas present of gift cards for the rest of their life. Well, not really as they would have been to frighted to even attempt this nonsense in the first place out of fear of death.
I say discipline and control your kids now so the cops or some crazed vigilante (Joe Horn) doesn’t KILL them later over property.
SOUTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Police in New Jersey said it was a typical holiday Grinch tale: A home was broken into on Christmas Eve, and wrapped presents were stolen off a kitchen table.
Little did they know the culprits were kids.
Authorities in South Brunswick say a nine-year-old girl and a five-year-old boy used a gift card to pick the lock on the back door of a home a block away. They then made off with about $200 in wrapped presents.
The couple who lived in the home returned from some Christmas Eve shopping to find the house broken into, and the presents gone.
One of the children’s relatives who also lived in the neighbourhood spoke with the couple and realized the gifts matched some mysterious extra presents the children appeared to receive on Christmas.
The relative contacted the children’s mother, who got the truth out of them on Wednesday, and then contacted police. No charges are planned.
“A nine-and five-year-old would never be on our suspect list,” said South Brunswick police Detective Jim Ryan said. “For a burglary? Maybe for taking a bike or something like that, but not for a burglary.”
