Toronto police have seized an additional $24,000 worth of toys as part of an ongoing investigation into the disappearance of $2-million worth of toys from a local Salvation Army warehouse.
The latest batch of recovered toys were found in a business on Orfus Road, in the city's northwest, on Thursday night.
No new arrests in the case have been made. Police have provided few other details about the latest development in the case.
The Salvation Army revealed last week that about 100,000 toys -- valued at approximately $2 million -- had disappeared from its Railside Road warehouse over a two-year period.
Two men have been arrested in connection with the theft: David Rennie, the former CEO of the Salvation Army, and Umaish Ramrattan, of Ajax.
Both are facing multiple counts of theft, possession of stolen goods and breach of trust.
