This is David Rennie, the former executive director of a Salvation Army warehouse in Toronto. He’s a part-time teacher who loves motorcycles.
He’s also the man suspected of stealing up to 100,000 toys and donations — worth about $2 million — from the warehouse over the last two years. Basically, a real-life Grinch:
Rennie has been on paid leave since August, when the charity began an internal audit of his warehouse. On Monday, he apparently turned himself in. He’ll appear in court on Jan. 4.
The AP reports police found 146 wooden stacks’ worth of items — cribs, toys, and strollers among them — in a separate Toronto warehouse. It’s unclear if these were Rennie’s stolen pieces.
On the bright side, the Salvation Army has reported a flood of support in response to the news.
- At least 10 people, including the gunman, are dead after a shooting at a mall in Munich, Germany.
- Hillary Clinton has picked Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine as her running mate. He was considered a favorite for the ticket.
- Employees at a textile factory that made Trump shirts report dangerous, abusive conditions — harsh even for Honduras.
