Thief Steals Gifts for Underprivileged Children from Watertown Church

Someone went into a Watertown church on Monday and stole dozens of wrapped gifts that were meant for underprivileged children, according to police. 

This weekend was the deadline for the collection of gifts and police believe the thief knew they were there when he or she broke into the First Congregational Church on DeForest Street between 3 and 4 p.m. Monday and stole 36 wrapped gifts, including toys, clothes and diapers, police said. 

Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to call the Watertown Police Department at (860) 945-5200 or Crimestoppers at (860) 945-9940.
