Thief Tricks Car Dealership Into Turning Over Toys for Tots
Move over, Grinch—you’ve got competition. A Florida man posed as a member of Toys for Tots and tricked workers at an Ocala car dealership into turning over dozens of gifts for disadvantaged kids, WESH-TV reported. Staff at the Phillips Dodge dealership didn’t suspect anything until the real Toys for Tots coordinator called a few hours later to make arrangements to collect the donated items, the station reported. A day later, the toys meant for children in Marion County had still not been recovered.
