A St. Louis County family has its Christmas back, thanks to fast work from the Normandy Police Department.
Two suspects broke into the Lilly family home on Dec. 15 and stole the presents from under the Christmas tree. The thieves even unwrapped the presents and left the paper.
Police say clues came together fast, including footprints in the snow. Officers saw the same prints outside another home that had been broken into days earlier. When one of the alleged thieves bragged about it at Sumner High School, word filtered back to police. That 18-year-old suspect was arrested and charged.
Police are still searching for his accomplice.
