State Police ask for public’s help to return lost gifts

In the spirit of the season, State Police are hoping to return a bag of presents to a child just in time for Christmas morning.

State troopers received several calls on Tuesday from motorists about a large bag found on the Exit 20 ramp of Route 93 northbound in Boston, State Police said.


The trash bag contained many unwrapped toys.

“Help us bring joy to a child’s holiday season by helping us find the rightful owner of the toys,” State Police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the State Police barracks located at the Ted Williams Tunnel at 617-946-3000.
