HOUSTON -

Local 2 told you earlier this week about a tow truck driver who stole from a car he was hauling away from the scene of a crash.

An outpouring of generosity as people are donating new gift cards to replace the ones that were stolen.

John Burch, a wrecker driver, is charged with theft after being accused of stealing hundreds of dollars in gift cards from Deandre Holmes’s car.

After hearing about the theft, a group of other wrecker drivers decided to do something about it.

Holmes, who had planned to give gift cards to his employees for Christmas, called the wreckers real life Santa Clauses.
