FIFE, Wash. — An actual-life Grinch continues to be on the unfastened after stealing a full truckload of one of many season’s hottest toys from a South Sound distribution middle.
A excessive-tech toy gun on the truck is likely one of the hottest toys this vacation season.
“That they had a trailer that was loaded with absolutely of toys and able to be distributed,” stated Fife Police Sgt. Tom Thompson.
However an entire semi-truck load of those toys disappeared every week in the past from a distribution middle in Fife. The producer stated about 6,000 of the Laser-X toys have been within the trailer — headed everywhere in the western U.S.
“We consider the person who stole that tractor hooked as much as the trailer filled with toys and simply drove away with it,” Thompson stated.
What’s odd concerning the heist is that it occurred on a Wednesday in broad daylight, and that the tractor and trailer have been stolen on the similar time — and that it simply occurred to be filled with one of the crucial widespread toys of the season.
“It is in all probability greater than a criminal offense of alternative, often semi-tractors are usually not one thing that is often focused to be stolen,” Thompson stated. “It appears to be like anyone knew that was in that trailer.”
The tractor is a white Freightliner with Washington plates. The trailer is labeled “Triton” and is reddish-brown in shade with Tennessee plates. As for the toys, they’ll in all probability ended up on Craigslist or OfferUp.
“Our guess is that they’re in all probability going to be fairly a considerable low cost 15 and so we’re hoping that people can, in the event that they see that or occur to note this stuff on sale, that they’d be prepared to provide us a name,” Thompson stated.
For those who’re capturing for getting the Laser-X gun beneath the tree, close by toy stoles appear to be properly-stocked with them.
