Toys for Tots: Thief steals donation box full of giftsPosted: Updated:
A real-life Grinch stole Christmas gifts out of a Toys For Tots box in Yonkers last week.
Officials say someone claiming to be from the main Westchester Toys for Tots organization came inside the Modell's on Central Avenue and picked up around 50 toys. However, they later found out that the person was a fraud and no actual employee had been sent to the store for pickup.
No charges have been filed in the case.
Officials tell News 12 that the same scam happened last week at a Toys for Tots box at a Toys R Us in White Plains.
