8-Year-Old Accused Of Stealing Christmas Presents

By: Ami Angelowicz / December 25, 2012

When several packages containing Christmas presents went missing from the doorsteps of a subdivision in Clermont, Florida, some of the residents decided to do something about it. Two neighbors conspired with a hidden camera and some decoy boxes and caught the culprit on camera — an 8-year-old girl. But before you feel sorry for her, you should know that she first denied stealing, then admitted that she’d done it on a dare. I might have been on her team if she was deprived of Christmas presents and that caused her to steal out of desperation, not that it’s the right thing to do. But a dare? She deserves a lump of coal from Santa this year. [UPI]
