Former Sally Ann executive charged in connection to thefts
Toronto police have charged former Salvation Army executive director David Rennie in connection to the theft of about $2-million worth of toys and other donations.
He turned himself in to police today, and he now faces 40 charges including theft, possession of stolen property and breach of trust.
Over the weekend, police executed search warrants in two wholesale warehouses in Brampton and near Weston and Steeles where they found a "significant" portion of the stolen goods.
Police allege that the thefts took place under Rennie's control. They allege Rennie would sometimes redirect donations to the wholesale warehouses and the toys were then to be sold for profit.
Detectives say the wholesale company Northern Sales was involved, and they are looking for a second suspect.
