I think we've found this season's Grinch! A van loaded with $6,000 worth of toys set to be passed out to hundreds of children was stolen from a store parking lot.
The toys were meant for more than 350 kids, the toys were set to be distributed on Dec. 20. The hope now is to replace the stolen toys before then. Time is officially of the essence. The community is reportedly responded in a big way by donating more toys and money.
"Shock, disbelief just how somebody could do that...especially in marked vehicle, taking gifts for children. The response of the community and what they're doing is absolutely heartwarming because this area is just so generous and giving here." said Lt Christopher Rockwell with the Salvation Army Farmington Corps
According to NBC News the Salvation Army operates out of 25 centers around New Mexico and provides church service, food for the hungry and shelter, and clothes for the homeless.
