Thieves Steal Thousands In Christmas Care Packages Meant For Troops In Afghanistan

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – About $5,000 worth of packages that were meant for the troops in Afghanistan were stolen from a Sacramento warehouse.

“There’s all sorts of stuff in here,” said Scott Raab, at the charity Move America Forward.

The big boxes were loaded and ready to go. Inside were some of the comforts of home like coffee, beef jerky, jelly beans, deodorant, sanitation wipes, and something for the season.

“We, of course, got this Christmas stocking,” said Raab.

There were also Christmas cards, along with personalized notes from Americans saying thank you for your service.

Sometime Monday morning there were some creatures stirring as the last of the Christmas care packages were being sent out.
