This police officer took on the role of Santa Claus for one lucky family.

Brian Koeppen says a package with a new Hot Wheels toy for his son was stolen off his porch in Ohio.

Officer Joe Wess was called to the scene to investigate the robbery.

He was so upset that anyone would steal from a kid, especially around the holidays that he came back to the house and replaced the gift for Brian’s son.

The dad was overwhelmed by the officer’s kindness and says he can’t wait to pay it forward one day.
