Christmas Eve burglars take gifts in Tumwater

By Jeremy Pawloski
The Olympian / (MCT)

A 39-year-old Tumwater man said he was devastated Christmas after he came home Tuesday night to find his home burglarized — his sons’ Christmas gifts swiped from under the Christmas tree and at least $6,000 in camera equipment missing.

“It’s devastating. I’m angry. I’m upset. I’m shocked. I’m sick and I’m trying to rely on my faith like I have never had to before,” Tim Rogers said in a phone interview Wednesday. “This whole thing is like a nightmare.”

Tumwater Police Lt. Patti Mize confirmed Wednesday that an officer took the burglary report after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night at a home off 12th Avenue on Tumwater Hill.

Rogers said he came home from visiting friends Tuesday night to find the living room trashed, with the stockings for his two sons, ages 7 and 10, unwrapped. The Christmas presents for the boys were gone, he said.

A $1,000 reward is being offered to anyone who successfully recovers seven paintings by Seattle artist Whiting Tennis, which were stolen last week when a truck they were in was taken from a hotel parking lot.

The reward is being offered by Tennis’ gallery representative Greg Kucera.

Tennis is scheduled to open a show on Jan. 18 at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in Salem, Ore. and museum representatives were in town Wednesday to pick up the pieces from Tennis’ North Seattle studio.

They put the paintings in a rental truck, which was stolen overnight from the lot at a Holiday Inn Express where the museum representatives were staying.

Someone spotted the truck in West Seattle early Thursday morning, but didn’t report it to police until the weekend, after news about the stolen truck and artwork ran on TV.
