PORT ANGELES, Wash. — Thieves cleared out a Salvation Army storage unit containing toys that were going to be distributed to children this week.
Bicycles, electronics, video games, backpacks, movies and other items were taken.
According to Port Angeles deputy police chief Brian Smith, two men were seen leaving the storage unit near East Front Street and North Race Street sometime Sunday morning.
Smith said that officers are still investigating what exactly happened.
Investigators believe the thieves made more than one trip to the unit to steal the toys.
KONP Radio wrote on Facebook that they will be hosting an emergency toy drive on Monday and Tuesday. The Salvation Army was planning on distributing the toys on Thursday.
