Police say earlier this week, thieves posing as volunteers were caught on surveillance loading the gifts into their cars.

Akron Police are still looking for the suspects but in the meantime, Akron Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #7 has replenished the gifts.

Toys for Tots volunteers say they’re thankful to Akron Police for their generous contributions.

The City of Akron also took to Twitter to thank eBay for stepping up with a $5,000 donation.

There have been no arrests.

There is grainy video of the suspects. Police hope that will help break the case.
