Police arrest boy who opened Christmas present without permission (USA TODAY)

Police charged a 12-year-old boy with petty larceny Sunday after he opened a Christmas present without permission.

"The boy's great-grandmother had specifically told him not to open his Nintendo Game Boy Advance, which she had wrapped and placed beneath the Christmas tree, according to a police report," The (Rock Hill, S.C.) Herald reported. "But on Sunday morning, she found the box of the popular handheld game console unwrapped and opened. When the boy's 27-year-old mother heard about the opened gift, she called police."

"He took it without permission. He wanted it. He just took it," the 63-year-old great-grandmother told the newspaper.

The boy, who has a history of disciplinary problems, was booked as a juvenile and released the same day. His mother plans to ask the state to take custody of him during an upcoming court appearance.

"Yeah, it's strange," a police spokesman said of the case.

Tony, this quote of Pauls to the Corinthians fits perfectly to you... may it be a blessing to you today!

"I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—IN ALL YOUR SPEAKING AND IN ALL YOUR KNOWLEDGE— because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful".

I Corinthians 1:4-9
