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.More
