The Franklin Police Department in Massachusetts is on red alert as a robbery is in progress.
According to reports, toys that they have gathered to send off to the Santa Foundation have gone missing!
The perpetrator still seems to be on the premises.
Sure enough, he is.
The officers of the Franklin Police Department have been working hard to collect toys to give children for Christmas. They’ve gathered toys so that children who have needs will have something to open on Christmas.
Unfortunately, they began to realize that some of the toys have gone missing. They started to investigate and quickly found a suspect – Ben.
Ben, an adorable golden retriever, is a therapy dog who works for the Franklin Police Department. He is a happy and playful dog. And as it turns out, he is living up to his breed by being a retriever – a toy retriever to be exact.
When all the evidence led them to Ben, it was obvious; they had a case of pooch larceny in progress.
The dog was caught red-handed as he was carrying a baby doll in its carrier as he tries to evade the police. The officers tailed the perpetrator, who led them to his bed under a desk where they found a stash of toys he’d been taking.
The toys were all covered in Ben slobber, and the officers can no longer donate them to kids, so they replaced them with new ones.
While Ben won’t be charged with theft, he has been banned from entering the toy room altogether. But that’s okay, as it seems, Ben has already gathered all the toys he needs to keep him busy.
Thanks to the dedicated officers over at the Franklin Police Station, the adorable criminal’s act has been captured in a video.
We learned an extremely valuable lesson today. When you have a classroom full of toys ready to be shipped off to the Santa Foundation, you should…1. Close the door to the classroomOr 2. Keep the toys elevated If not, a golden retriever will slowly hoard them throughout the day and bring them back to his lair. Thanks to Officer Cusson for capturing this larceny on camera.
