Toronto police recover $2.4m worth of items stolen from Salvation Army
TORONTO (AP) - Toronto police say they have recovered a massive cache of toys and donated goods worth about US$2 million (S$2.44 million) that were stolen from a Salvation Army warehouse and being sold for profit.
Police said on Saturday that they had to use three tractor-trailers to haul the items, which were found a day earlier when officers searched a commercial warehouse in Brampton north-west of Toronto.
Police say they discovered 146 wooden platforms stacked with items including toys, baby cribs, strollers and food.
It's alleged that up to 100,000 items worth some US$2 million were stolen from a Salvation Army warehouse in north-end Toronto over nearly two years.
