77-year-old NC man says burglar stole grandson’s wedding gift
GASTONIA, N.C. — A 77-year-old man said someone broke into his Gastonia home while he was at church Sunday, taking money meant for his grandson’s wedding gift.
Clarence Gordon said he and his wife came home after church service to find the door kicked in and items missing from the home.
Someone had pried open a locked drawer and grabbed $1,000 in cash which was saved as a wedding gift for Gordon’s grandson, Gordon said.
Three long guns were also taken from a gun case and one belonged to his uncle who passed.
