The Dade City (FL) Police Department gave a number of residents an early holiday gift when the agency paid off the balance owed for countless gifts on layaway that were in danger of being placed back on the shelves of a local Walmart.

According to NBC News, Dade City Police Chief James Walters delivered payment of more than $4,300 due for more than two dozen purchases that would have expired on the day of their visit to the store.

The layaway purchases were paid for because of anonymous donations to the Dade City Police Department foundation.
