Burglars Steal Poole Pastor's Christmas Presents
Thieves stole Christmas presents from a pastor's house in Poole while he was in church leading a carol service.
Simon Patterson returned home in Poole, Dorset, on Sunday evening to discover that the front door was slightly open and a garden spade had been left next to it.
Inside, he found that one bedroom had been rifled through and some of his four children's Christmas presents had been taken from a wardrobe, along with a tablet computer and a woman's handbag containing a phone, purse and digital camera.
Mr Patterson, who leads Parkstone Evangelical Free Church, said: ``We had a burglary while we were at a carol service and they took some presents.''
He said family and friends had helped to replace the stolen gifts and urged members of the public not to donate anything.
``We've had lots of generosity and gifts from other people,'' he said
A Dorset Police spokeswoman said: ``We were called to reports of a burglary on Ringwood Road which occurred sometime between 3.40pm and 5.50pm on December 21.
``Offenders gained access to the secured premises by forcing the front door and stole an unknown quantity of children's Christmas presents and jewellery.
``There have been no arrests.''
