D.C. Cops accused of stealing from Toys for Tots
Four Washington, D.C. police officers are suspected of stealing toys donated to the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program, police said Wednesday.
No arrests have been made in the incident, which is still under an internal investigation, according to Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Traci Hughes. The four officers were operating out of the Sixth District Station in Southeast. They have been taken off the street and put on “non-contact status.”
A Toys for Tots spokesman could not be reached Wednesday.
The charity, which has existed since 1947 and operates nationwide, collects toys and distributes them to needy families who cannot afford to buy Christmas gifts for their children.
