BRAMPTON, Ont. - Toronto police have recovered a massive cache of toys and donated goods they say were stolen from a Salvation Army warehouse.

Police say they had to use three tractor-trailers to haul the items, which were found Friday when officers searched a commercial warehouse in Brampton, northwest of the city.

They say they discovered 146 skids stacked with items including toys, baby cribs, strollers and food.

It's alleged up to 100,000 items worth some $2 million were stolen from the charity's facility in north-end Toronto over nearly two years.

Police say they'll return the goods once they've finished taking an inventory.

More information is expected to be released Monday.
