Christmas Eve became a less joyous occasion for a Dacula man after a thief or thieves stole his newly purchased presents.

The man said he arrived at his Hamilton Mill home around midnight on Dec. 23, leaving some Christmas presents in the car. Christmas Eve morning, the man went outside to get the presents and noticed his driver's side door was slightly cracked open. When he looked inside the car, he realized the presents were gone.

The man said he may have left the car doors unlocked.

The thief or thieves escaped with six scarves, two tablet cases, one book bag and cologne. 

The case is listed as active.

At least one other Christmas Eve car break-in was reported in Hamilton Mill. As of article publication time, that report was not yet available.

"Stupid is as stupid does"....what Gump meant by this is that even an intelligent person who does stupid thing is still perceived as being stupid.

Since October of last year, I have been advocating a COPS program in Hamilton Mill. Each subdivision would have the opportunity to sign up individually in order to make the program easier to manage. If anyone is interested in this program, please contact me, and I will send you information which will tell you how to become active in this great program! Hamilton Mill residents can find my phone and email on the HM website in the message board.
