Police say a Minnesota man who gave neighbors knives for Christmas was charged with burglary after allegedly stealing the knives back, according to a Huffington Post article.

Alfred Joseph Guercio, 54, told KSTP TV that the neighbors "did not appreciate" his gift. He was arrested on March 11 for allegedly breaking into his neighbors' home.

The HuffPo article said Guercio allegedly put his foot into the front door of the home, pushed his neighbor aside and made off with the knives.
