Toronto police have recovered a massive cache of toys and donated goods they say were stolen from a Salvation Army warehouse.
Police say they had to use three tractor-trailers to haul the items, which were found Friday when officers searched a commercial warehouse in Brampton.
They say they discovered 146 skids stacked with items including toys, baby cribs, strollers and food.
It’s alleged up to 100,000 items worth some $2 million were stolen from the charity’s facility in north-end Toronto over nearly two years.
Police say they’ll return the goods once they’ve finished taking an inventory.
More information is expected to be released Monday.
