VIDEO: Grinch Steals Presents From Family With Teen With Autism

December 22, 2014

A man in Studio City, CA, stole seven packages off a family's porch — all containing Christmas presents, CBS Los Angeles reported. 

The family, whose son Jackson has autism, is devastated. Among the presents stolen was a hard-to-find Disney Collection CD, volume 3. The Saftler family ordered it from the UK and it's unlikely they'll be able to find a replacement in time for Christmas.

“It seems silly because it’s just a CD but to him it’s everything and this is all he wants and all he asked for and it’s not too much to ask for him to get something he wants for Christmas. It’s not fair," the family told CBS.
