Toys Collected for Sick Kids Stolen

The V.F.W. of Diboll and the Lufkin Marine Corps spend months collecting toys for sick children in East Texas, but recently, a storage room full of games, stuffed animals and other items was stolen.

The toys were packed away in a garage on Hines Street in Diboll. The Marine Corps collected them for its Toys for Tots program so the V.F.W. could pass them out to kids in local hospitals and during the Christmas season.

Because of the number of toys stolen, it would have taken multiple trips or more than one person to haul them off.

Anyone with any information on this crime should call either the Lufkin or Diboll police departments.
