By David Klassen

A break-in Christmas Eve put a damper on the holiday season for a homeowner in Portage la Prairie.

RCMP say a thief broke into a home in the 600 block of 2nd Street NW at about 11:15 p.m. on Saturday.

Once inside, the thief made off with a flat screen TV, a PlayStation video game console, as well as several wrapped Christmas gifts.

No arrests have been made and police continue to investigate.
