A grinch made off with thousands of dollars worth of toys, set to be donated to needy children, in a Central District burglary earlier this month.
Staff at the Central District YWCA put approximately $6200 worth of radio controlled cars, basketballs, and other toys in to storage at a building on 28th and E. Cherry Street on December 3rd.
This morning, they discovered all the toys had gone missing, and called police.
It’s not clear when the toys were taken, as a staff member noticed the storage door was open on December 7th, but didn’t think anything of it at the time.
The case will be turned over to the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct burglary unit for investigation.
