On Monday, Toronto Salvation Army executive director David Rennie was fired and charged in connection with the theft of $2 million worth of toys, according to the Toronto Star.
Rennie, 51, was arrested after he turned himself in Monday morning. He faces charges of theft over $5,000, possession of stolen property and criminal breach of trust.
He was released on a promise to appear in court on Jan. 4.
“We’re alleging the thefts took place under David Rennie’s control and without the permission of the Salvation Army,” detective Jim Gotell said at a news conference.
Gotell said the “toys were going to be redirected to other parties and sold for profit.”
