But in Utah, one thief went too far and swiped something critical: a three-month supply of a preschooler's kidney medication, worth $5,000, per KSTU.
When Cody Taylor, single dad to 4-year-old Austin, realized the meds—necessary to keep Austin's body from rejecting a kidney transplant—had been stolen, he started scrambling to figure out how to pay for a replacement set. Luckily, the insurance company said it would pay for new meds, but Taylor still has a message to porch thieves: Their actions "could range from ruining someone's Christmas to threatening someone's life."
