Toys for Tots trove recovered in Maine

By Washington Post Editors

Police in Maine recovered a trove of toys they say were meant for the Toys for Tots program, according to this report:

Bangor Police say they received a tip a couple of days ago that a Patten Street resident had a large amount of toys in his home, and the man living there was a volunteer for the Toys for Tots organization. Officials say based on that information, they went to the home and confiscated an estimated $7-10,000 worth of new toys that were intended for needy families.
Some of those toys included $2,700 worth that the Bangor Fire Department had just bought the night before. Police are not releasing any names at this point, but Skip Young, the Director of Toys for Tots in Greater Bangor, says the man's name is Jim Nickerson and he was selling the toys on eBay.

Let me say that the "United Forensic College" is the friendliest, most helpful and accessible college out there right now. The Criminal Justice curriculum isn’t going to overwhelm you.
