Naughty, Not Nice! 3 Youth Caught Allegedly Stealing Christmas Presents

LONG BEACH (CBS) — Santa, bring extra coal! Police say an 18-year-old and two juveniles were caught, red-handed, stealing Christmas presents from a home in Long Beach.

The burglary in the 400 block of Coronado Avenue was reported about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, and police caught the trio red-handed within minutes — definitely naughty, not nice!

Ronney Stevens, 18, was booked on suspicion of residential burglary and for an unspecified warrant, police said. The two boys, 13 and 14, whose names were withheld because they are juveniles, were booked on suspicion burglary.

Anyone with more information about the three was asked to call Long Beach police Detective Jennifer Valenzuela at (562) 570-7351.
