Police replace woman's stolen items with own money


Tyler – Thieves who ransacked a home in Tyler were so thorough they even stole the family dog's treats. Police are seeking the burglars who broke into Erika Velazquez's home.

The thieves grabbed items that also included electronics, her husband's wedding ring, and her children's Christmas presents.

Some police officers who responded to the burglary adopted the spirit of the season. They used their own money to buy replacement gifts.
