Tenn. police looking for owner of missing presents

(AP) - Clarksville police are trying to identify the owner of nearly two dozen wrapped Christmas gifts that may have been stolen.

Clarksville police said in a statement that police were called to a residential neighborhood on Monday after a report of suspicious activity. Police found several items that were identified as being stolen from recent vehicle burglaries, but they also found 22 wrapped presents with names on the gift tags.

Police said it appeared that the presents were partially opened to check the contents and then discarded. Police are hoping to return the gifts to the rightful owners in time for Christmas.

Anyone who believes the gifts may be theirs and can identify the contents should call the Clarksville police department at (931) 648-0656 ext. 4000.
