Three Toronto men have been arrested in connection with the theft of a truckload of toys meant for needy children. 31-year old Jason Carrine and 27-year old Wayne Kenny are scheduled to make their first appearance in a Toronto court thursday and are facing a number of charges, including possession of property obtained by crime. Police say there are two suspects still outstanding.

The truck went missing on Saturday September 26th and it was found Friday October 9th in the area of Brimley Road and Eglinton Avenue East with half of its cargo missing.

Working on a tip, police discovered the toys were being sold out of an apartment near Weston Road and highway 401. They executed a search warrant on Wednesday and found the two suspects along with a quantity of toys.

The toys had originally been collected for the Toys for Tots program run by both Peel Police and the Salvation Army. At this time, there are still a number of toys missing and police are asking for anyone with information to come forward so the toys can be returned to the Toys for Tots program.
