SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A husband and wife suspected of stealing toys from a donation bin for a children's charity during the Christmas season were arrested by San Diego police, a detective reported Tuesday.
Timoteo and Rowena Orque were taken into custody Monday at their home and booked on suspicion of commercial burglary, said SDPD Detective Laura Zizzo.
On Dec. 16, the Orques allegedly walked up to a Ronald McDonald House Charities donation bin in the lobby of the North Island Credit Union at 5898 Copley Drive and stole several toys, Zizzo said.
They allegedly put the stolen loot in an empty mail bin covered with a jacket and then fled the scene in a burgundy vehicle, Zizzo said.
Police detectives used surveillance video to identify Timoteo Orque as the owner of the vehicle, and determined that he and his wife were the suspects seen in the footage, Zizzo said.
