The Grinch is loose on our streets this holiday season.
One Mississauga man discovered a bag of expensive presents he had just bought for his kids was missing after he and his wife got into an accident during Saturday’s snowstorm.
Christopher Garcia-Jones says he just wants those gifts back in time to celebrate Christmas with his four children, one of whom has Down syndrome.
“I’m still hoping that the person who picked up the bag is going to be kind enough to return the bag,” he said Monday.

Toronto Sun readers are a sweet bunch.
The plight of one family whose bag of Christmas presents went missing in a weekend car accident has caught the attention of more than a few of them.
Christopher Garcia-Jones, 37, said he and his wife were driving on Hurontario St. on Saturday when ice from a tractor trailer they were passing struck the roof of their van and broke their rear window.
Garcia-Jones says that after they spun out of control and regained their composure at the scene, they realized the bag of presents they bought from Target — including an iPad mini for their youngest son who has Down syndrome — was missing.

A Mississauga couple who claimed to have lost a bag of Christmas presents have both been charged with making up the story, Peel Regional Police said Wednesday.
Christopher Garcia-Jones, 37, told the Toronto Sun on Monday that he and his wife, Frances Maila Fajardo, 47, were missing a bag of gifts bought with cash from Target — including an iPad mini for their youngest son who he said has Down syndrome — after a piece of ice struck their van on Hurontario St. during Saturday’s snowstorm. He said at the time that he thought the bag of gifts flew out of the vehicle as it spun out of control.
But police now allege their story wasn’t true.
“That’s what we’re alleging, that during his interview (with police) he did admit to us that he fabricated the theft and how the damage occurred to his vehicle,” Const. George Tudos said.
Garcia-Jones would not answer Wednesday when asked numerous times if he stood by the story he shared with Sun readers despite the charges.
