Jun. 21, 2013 @ 08:10 AM

NITRO, W.Va. (AP) — A faith-based charity says someone made off with toys that had been collected for sick children.

According to media reports, Basket of Hope says the toys were taken from a storage locker in Nitro sometime within the last week.

The organization relies on donated money and gifts of new toys to fill baskets destined for ill children.

The stolen gifts included dolls, action figures, accessories and merchandise that had yet to be sorted.
Basket of Hope has branches throughout the country.
