Oak Harbor Police trying to solve Christmas mystery
OAK HARBOR, Wash. -- Oak Harbor Police are trying to solve a Christmas mystery - they have wrapped gifts but no idea who they belong to.
An officer found the presents earlier this week after the arrest of Shane Larsen for driving with a license suspended and possession of methamphetamine.
The officer obtained a search warrant for Larsen's vehicle, and that's when he recovered drug-related items, a bolt cutter, electronic devices, a duffle bag with old coins and wrapped Christmas presents. The four wrapped presents have name tags attached saying who they're for and who they're from.
Two of the presents are addressed to someone named Abigail from her grandparents and her uncle Johnny and Shannon. Another present is for Christopher from his grandma and grandpa, and the fourth is for Carolyn from her uncle Don and Alex.
According to the affidavit, the coins found in Larsen's car were reported stolen after a burglary in November. The coins, which are worth $6,000 to $7,000, were found in a gray duffle bag that also included a document with the owner's name.
Police believe Larsen got the stolen property by committing a burglary or he received the items as trade for methamphetamine.
The gifts were placed into the department's evidence room and were not available for the media to view on Friday.
Detectives posted the stolen gift information on their Facebook page, but so far it has not gotten them any leads. If you know who the gifts might belong to, call Oak Harbor Police.
