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.

    find the ones that did this and whack off the hand that they use to feed them self or whack off a leg so they no longer run so fast and they pay for every thing they took plus two to five years in prison and fines .

    Find the guys who did this and put them to work at hard labor at about $1 an hour until they have paid it back 5 times. Oh and if they refuse to work then they are put in a box by themselves all food is served in a cup ( or K rations ) where they are compensated at 10 cents per hour until they pay it back 10 times. People like this are totally worthles.
