Default xmas present gone!

I need some major advice.
My ds (14) stole his xmas present and a mp3 player from our room. I'm so upset. I just can't believe he would do such a thing. I feel like I really failed at teaching him morals. On top of it I can't get him to fess up. Please if anyone has advice. :\

He stole them? Like he took them and maybe sold them on the side? I'm sorry he found his Christmas presents but I wouldn't consider it stealing unless he took them and sold them or something. They were going to be his, correct?

He won't admit he took the tablet. He has been the only person here. We knew he was snooping. Kids do that. I just don't get taking it. The mp3 he gave to a friend at school.

No, it is stealing all right. Unless his name was on them already, he had no knowledge that they were his.

I think I would not even ask him to confess, you'll just "force" him to lie about it. I would just take it as a matter of fact that that is what happened. I would take away his allowance untill the mp3 is paid off (seeing that he took it and gave it away - he has to "buy" it from you. The tablet. Well, the moment you see him with it, confiscate it. Its yours until you physically give it to him i.e. for Christmas.

After you get the stuff back you can I would make him take them to a toys for tots or local toy drive then he can go without at christmas. That is lack of respect for you and your rules at home. We all snooped when we were his age. But taking the stuff is going way to far. He can go without he ruined his own christmas.

A. Did he know that they were intended for him?
B. Why do you think he admits to the MP3 and not the tablet?
C. What reason would he have for taking them~ do you think he sold them for $ for something?
I just find it really odd that someone would steal something that was going to be given to them in a little over 2 weeks anyway. Wondering why he didn't just ask for it early.

Wow, I'm really sorry he did that. That is very disrespectful. There's gotta be a way to teach him a lesson.

You did not fail. He got greedy and stole things out of your room. I would think you have no chance at getting them back if he sold them or gave them away. The fact he refuses to fess up is sad but has nothing to do how you raised him. He is still alive At 14 you have done a awesome job at raising him. As far as what to do. I am evil and you don't want to hear my ideas. I would get so even with him in a nice loving caring way. I would take anything of value out of his room and box it up and hide it all when he was at school and when he asks where all his stuff was. I would say. I have no idea. Just like he said to you.
