Chadwick Simmons was arrested Monday for stealing Christmas presents on Dec. 12.
Security footage from the Columbia Housing Authority show Simmons leaving the home, located on Lincoln Drive, with a bag of items. Simmons had apparently been in the residence earlier and knew the gifts were there.
The presents were returned after a Columbia Housing Authority employee found them at 208 Unity.
Simmons faces a bond of $4,500 for second-degree burglary and a bond of $500 for stealing.
