An investigation to find out who stole toys meant to be donated to the Toys for Tots program held by the Okkodo High School Marine Corp JROTC students is currently ongoing.
In an interview on Newstalk K57 with Patti Arroyo, Senior Okkodo High School ROTC student Keisha Carlos, mentioned that the robbery happened two weeks ago on Sunday.
Carlos says that police are currently checking surveillance footage to see who stole the bags of toys and who broke into the classroom and who also had prior knowledge of where the bags were.
Allegedly – a group of males was seen in the footage.
“They specifically targeted only our classroom, however; there are also other classrooms that have been broken into,” Carlos said.
Carlos said that, including the bags that were stolen, they were able to collect an estimated 1,200 toys, “Fortunately, not as much. I believe they only took 5 bags of toys.”
Carlos says that the thieves stole around 200-300 toys.
Despite the setback, the JROTC Cadet says that she and her fellow students were still able to collect a good amount of toys – which Marine Corps Camp Blaz already picked up.
