Its a problem many parents can relate to...keeping gifts hidden from the prying eyes of their kids before the big day.
Dwain Smith opted to keep his seven-year-old son's gifts in a storage unit.

"There was everything. Four, five hundred dollars worth of presents from wrestling to Xbox games to...everything," said Smith.

He was using a storage unit in Versailles to keep his son's gifts hidden up until the last possible second. But when family came to the unit this morning, the door was open and all of his son's gifts were gone.

"I can't fathom how somebody would steal a kid's Christmas presents. They had to look in the bag and see that it was kids presents," Smith said.

Smith says the lock was broken.

"Went and got another one but, there's not really anything worth stealing in there now," he said.

And his plans to make his son's Christmas a memorable one, ruined.

"Honestly don't know. Try to do what I can to get some more presents for him," said Smith.

He says whatever he gets to replace them, he's going to keep at home this time, just in case.

Versailles Police say they're investigating the theft.
