Who would steal from a ‘toys for needy children’ donation box?

You’re looking at ’em. The Smoking Gun calls them “grinches,” which sounds a little innocent for this trio, all of whom have priors for theft, according to court records.

The three from left to right are Deandra Cooke (18), Lacinda Granado-Overton (25), and Tarica Wright (26). All were hit with felony theft charges and booked into county jail for stealing items from a “Toys for Needy Children” donation box outside a Walmart in Illinois.

According to cops in Aledo, the women stole the toys last night from a box that was placed in front of the retailer by a local Jaycees organization. The group distributes the collected toys to several hundred children in Mercer County, which is just south of the Quad Cities area.

Bond has not yet been set. Here’s hoping that the local magistrate is working a staggered shift this close to the holiday and won’t have a chance to arraign these degenerates until after Christmas.
