Ben, one of the cutest dogs on the market, turned out to be the burglar who stole presents from the holiday toy drive. Candy, in particular. Ben is the Massachusetts Police Department’s therapy dog, and he enjoys playing with toys. He doesn’t like the idea of sharing them with the kids, but he wants them all for himself.
In the future, the cops saw that some of the toys they had been collecting for children for the Santa Basis had gone missing, but they had no idea who the ‘offender’ was. Their suspicions were quickly dispelled, and the footage of Ben sneaking around with a toddler doll has gone viral.
“When Ben saw the toys, he assumed they all belonged to him,” Deputy Chief James Mill told WFXT, a Fox affiliate in the area, on Thursday. Ben led them to his mattress after they asked him why he took the toy and what he planned to do with it. Surprisingly, there were a variety of different toys present as well.
In the footage, one officer says, “You’re priceless.” “He’s going to stockpile those toys over there,” says the narrator. He insists on bringing them in here.” The police made a joke about closing the door to the room where the toys are kept and placing them high in the cupboards. “If not, a golden retriever will gradually hoard them during the day and return them to his lair,” the publication learns. “Thank you, Officer Cusson, for capturing this robbery on camera.”
Everyone knows how much Ben enjoys playing with toys, but some children want them much more than he does. Plus, he can’t possibly have them all. “I mean, he’s put his drool all over them at this point,” he explained, “so the police division has changed them.”
Ben, on the other hand, is the kind of terrific friend that everyone wishes they had in their lives. Every time he comes around, he brings smiles. “It’s fantastic.” “He’s like one of those friends who always show up at a party that everyone enjoys,” Mill told the station. “So even if you’re having a bad day, when Ben walks in, it’s like a beam of sunshine.”
