Updated 2 years ago

It’s a happy ending for an Oakland couple who received an unwanted visit from a grinch earlier this month.On December 6th, Charlotte and Del Lovejoy awoke to find that christmas gifts they bought for their family had been stolen from their house.Oakland police charged 26-year-old Brandon Rimes and 25-year-old Jason Horne with the theft.Police say the two men live across the street from the couple and destroyed most of the gifts they stole: however, the Oakland community came together to make sure it didn’t ruin the Lovejoy’s holiday season.They started raising money for the couple and last week, the Oakland Police Department presented the couple with four thousand dollars, enough money to replace all the gifts and then some.
