NORWALK - Norwalk police have identified three people who allegedly stole donations from a Toys for Tots box at City Hall.

The suspects were caught on surveillance video taking at least three gifts from the box.

However, the city is not pressing charges because they believe that these people needed the toys.

The registrar says she is saddened the incident happened, but has seen an outpouring of new gifts since the crime. There is still time to donate new or used gifts to Toys for Tots.
