CHINA LAKE, Calif. (FOX 13) - The mother of a fallen police officer given an unforgettable gift this Christmas.
Sean Tanner was an officer for the China Lake Police Department in California.
He passed away in October at the age of 21.
When Sean’s mother opened one of her presents this Christmas, he found a teddy bear dressed in a police officer uniform.
