A pooch working for a Massachusetts police department was caught red-pawed stealing from a toy donation bin.
The Franklin Police Department has been collecting toys for underprivileged children for the Santa Foundation — and recently noticed several toys had gone missing.
After reviewing surveillance tapes, officers caught their colleague Ben, a golden retriever who works for the department as a therapy dog, making off with the missing toys.
In a video posted to Facebook, Ben’s colleagues confronted him as he was attempting to steal yet another toy, a baby doll in a bassinet.
When asked, “where you going with the baby?” Ben bolted back to his bed where officers found the other missing and now slobber-covered toys.
“When Ben saw the toys, he thought they all belonged to him,” Franklin Police Deputy Chief James Mill told local news station WFXT TV.
The toys have been replaced and Ben has been banned from the toy room.
