It was a merry Christmas after all for a San Diego County family that had their holiday gifts stolen last week.
Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies have recovered more than 40 presents belonging to the family after arresting their neighbor Sunday in a separate burglary case.
Sheriff's Lt. James Royal says a Westlake Village man reported his iPad stolen by a burglar on Sunday, then traced the device to a nearby location.
After investigating, Royal says deputies arrested 20-year-old Patrick Krewson and recovered the iPad, then proceeded to search Krewson's apartment in Vista.
Royal says deputies found two flat screen TVs, a laptop and Christmas gifts stolen from a family's nearby apartment on Thursday.
