RICHMOND, Va.- Christmas was saved for a single mother and her son when officers from the Louisa Sheriff’s Department stepped in to play Santa.

Robin Robinson Fetrow saved all year for her son, Brandon’s holiday gifts, only to find them all stolen from beneath their tree last week.

With the list of items stolen, officers investigating the crime contacted the department chaplain, who worked with the community church to raise funds to replace the stolen gifts. Members of the department also pitched in, leaving Brandon with even more gifts than before.

"I’m overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity of the people in this county,” Fetrow said. “My son is going to have a great Christmas."
