Caught on camera: Man steals from Toys for Tots

Local News

Police in Pennsylvania are searching for the man caught on camera stealing donations from a Toys for Tots bin at a Poconos hotel.

Every year, the Comfort Inn and Suites hosts a Toys For Tots donation bin in the front lobby. They’re eventually distributed as Christmas presents for children in need.

A man, who was staying at the hotel, is accused of swiping three toys, then hiding them under a towel. Hotel General Manager Anthony Regan said, “If you had money to pay for a hotel room, you can go to the dollar store and get a toy. You don’t steal from children. I mean you just broke some kid’s heart for Christmas and that’s really sad.”

The hotel says it is checking guest records from this past weekend to find out who the thief was.
