It's a real-life case of a Grinch stealing Christmas; after a Lexington family is cleaned out by burglars.
It happened around 3 p.m. Sunday at a home on Hume road.
The Ginter family says returned home from a shopping trip to find their home broken into and thousands of dollars worth of items and Christmas presents taken from their home.
Nearly all of the families Christmas gifts as well as electronics and even an engagement ring were stolen from home.
The family typically opens gifts on Christmas Eve morning. To continue their family tradition, they took a last minute shopping trip to Wal-Mart as well as a few other retailers, but they say the damage has already been done and they are now warning other homeowners so this doesn't happen to another family.
Police are investigating the incident to see if it's connected to any other recent break-ins.

    Well....let's start off by saying that if our laws provided for chopping off hands of true thieves...sure would be less people taking things that don't belong to them.

    Well, I just have to start by saying, my two oldest kids live here in this home, part-time with their mother. I just hope for the robbers sake, the cops find them before i do. All kids, mine especially, are the most important people in this world, and there isn't anything lower than stealing kids Christmas gifts from under the tree. I will close in saying, it takes a real coward to harm a child, may God forgive you for your sins.
