Salvation Army Robbed of $2-Million in Toys
We're going to find out more about this from police on Wednesday, but the Salvation Army has been robbed of more than $2-million dollars worth of toys from it's Toronto warehouse, and it's believed to be an inside job.
The thefts allegedly happened over the course of two years.
The Executive director of the warehouse facility on Railside road was fired on Monday. An internal audit was done back in the summer, and the executive director had been put on paid leave at that point. CTV reporting that is David Rennie, who earned $111,215 according to the 2011 Sunshine List.
Food and other donations have also allegedly gone missing. It was thanks to an anonymous whistleblower that 'irregularities' were reported at that facility, which is near Lawrence and Victoria Park.
Toronto police will have more to share at a news conference at 1:30 on Wednesday.
Meantime, in the nation's capital, a Salvation Army executive director has been fired after an internal audit found nearly a quarter of a million dollars missing over an 8 year period. That case is in the hands of Ottawa police.
