How the south Sacramento Grinch tried to steal Christmas


It's not uncommon for burglaries to spike around the holiday season.

The Sacramento County Sheriff Office received 12 reports of burglaries in the five days leading up to Christmas in South Sacramento neighborhoods, and that's just in the areas they patrol.

One community is coming together to save a south Sacramento family's Christmas after their home was burglarized.

On Tuesday evening, Kristen Gregory came home to everything ransacked and torn apart.

Gregory says all her doors and windows were locked but thieves got in by popping the screens off the windows.

While most people are spending Christmas opening presents, her family is picking up the pieces of a house that no longer feels like home.
