It’s the season of giving, so there’s something extra unsettling about stealing Christmas presents.

In Roland Park, a couple saw had a puppy that was an early Christmas present stolen in a burglary. The story of 3-year-old Peggy’s disappearance quickly circulated, and led to an outpouring that included Del. Eric Bromwell. The Baltimore County resident said he would offer an extra $750 as a reward, according to the Baltimore Sun.
One Baltimore County family didn’t even get to unwrap their presents. In Halethorpe, a thief stole Christmas presents right from under the tree. “The first thing I noticed was torn wrapping paper on the floor,” said homeowner Miranda Lowe, according to WBAL-TV.
