(Inquisitr) An 8-year-old girl reportedly found a gun next to a teddy bear inside a wrapped Christmas present received from a New York donation program. Needless to say, her foster mother was a little unnerved by the discovery.

Harlem resident Sheeba Anderson said she picked up several donated gifts from St. Anthony’s Church on December 20. Nothing about the packages seemed out of the ordinary, which made the gun’s appearance that much more shocking.

According to Gizmodo, someone had taken the time to scratch out the weapon’s serial number. Thankfully, the donated Christmas gift didn’t contain any ammunition for the gun.
