The thieves in this Grinchey Garden Grove heist are still at large, according to the Orange County Register: "In a highly orchestrated burglary, someone broke into the United Labor Agency of Orange County's underground storage facility over the holiday weekend and carted out loads of donated toys and an estimated 20,000 pounds of food, said Sgt. James Colgrove of the Garden Grove Police Department." The agency has 24 days before Christmas to recover its losses.
