Santa's helper wear blue: Police help family

- A few of Santa’s helpers wore blue and jumped into action to return some stolen holiday joy in Texas.

It all started when a Dallas woman returned home to an unexpected surprise earlier this week.

A Christmas thief paid a visit and stole her children’s Christmas presents.

But their broken spirit didn't last too long. The officers who initially responded to the scene returned the next night with replacement gifts.

“They think it’s probably jewelry or something big or fancy, but it’s kids presents,” said Maria Cardona.

The thief remains at large and the burglary remains under investigation.
