It turns out a report of a Toys for Tots donation box theft at Walmart was all a misunderstanding. Glenville police Lt. Stephen Janik said a report came in Monday night that the box had been stolen from the vestibule of the Walmart Supercenter on Dutch Meadow Lane. A pair of Walmart employees saw a woman pull up to the store’s entryway, get out of her car, grab a donation box, put it in the ...

“We are waiting for Walmart security to run videos and provide us with a video from that time frame so we can hopefully make an ID,”

Nice, who's in charge there?

ChuckD obviously as a liberal you don't understand the law. There is a thing called a privacy law, the police can't take the video without a court subpoena so it is easier and more cost affective to let Wal Mart security isolate the incident and turn it over to the police. Liberalism, another word for clueless.

Walmart has every right to turn over the video without a subpoena. It's their property, so they can do as they like with it. More than likely, the delay is to give the police an opportunity to see if they can identify someone or have other law enforcement agencies take a look before going public. I fail to see how Chuck's post identifies him as a liberal - I thought he was annoyed that it was taking too long.

You have to understand, Safny. Wmarincic is such a hater of America that he will do anything to put down a supposed "liberal" even when there has been no indication that someone is liberal. Your understanding of ChuckD's post was absolutely right. Wmarincic has been doing this for months and months now. I am surprised the Gazette has not cut him off yet!

Yes stockadian the gazette should cut him off just because you disagree with his views, after all that would be the American thing to do.

Partly for taking too long, but more due to a large corporation influencing a possible criminal investigation (when has that ever happened before?). If your home security cameras picked up a possible crime do you think you'd be given a chance to run through them in private and pick and choose what the cops get to see? I doubt it. Remember: "...corporations are people too, my friend".

It's great that the DG allows comments here. And certainly a lot of what the shouty Tea Partiers spew is insulting and offensive and I could call this one out for "Suggest removal" several times, but I guess we've grown somewhat anesthetized to the bile and we now come to expect it. It's a learning opportunity, and as long as these God-fearin' haters keep it clean, even for the kids!
