Burglar Pillages Family Christmas Gifts

Most of us won't open our Christmas presents until Saturday, but Cookeville police say at least one burglar this week got an early start -- breaking into a home and unwrapping several presents that the family had purchased, taking some, but leaving others.  It happened at a home on Whitson Avenue sometime between 7 am and noon.  Police say that while the thief apparently did not want all of the presents, he did proceed to a child's bedroom and steal fifty dollars from a piggy bank.  Detective Tim Terry is investigating.
