Abandoned sack of gifts found in Gasoline Alley

A large sack filled with Christmas presents was found near a gas station in Gasoline Alley on Christmas Day.

A large sack filled with Christmas presents was found near a gas station in Gasoline Alley on Christmas Day.

Blackfalds Sgt. James Derouin said around 9:20 a.m. on Dec.25 a truck driver spotted the bag outside near the Shell gas station. The bag is described as light coloured and held 10 gifts of different sizes and three Christmas cards.

“Obviously the gifts were addressed but only the first names were used,” said Derouin. “We found a few cards in there but again only first names were used and nothing we could find that would help us track down the owners of these gifts.”

Derouin said the actions of the truck driver shows the Christmas spirit is alive in many people.

Contact the Blackfalds RCMP at 403-885-3300, if these are your presents or you know the owner.
