York Regional Police have released surveillance footage showing a man stealing toys and food donations from the fire hall in Aurora — twice — last Wednesday night. 

On two separate occasions between 3 and 4 a.m. Dec. 8, the man entered the station at 220 Edward St. in Aurora and filled a bag with donations piled up in the entrance way, according to Crime Stoppers York Region's Crime of the Week.

The donations were being collected for a Christmas toy drive for families in need. 

Video from the scene shows a man entering the fire hall and grabbing multiple toys before leaving and coming back, wearing a different jacket, to fill a bag with more items. It also shows a dark vehicle pulling up outside the station. 

The suspect is described as a male, aged 45 to 50 with light skin and a medium build. At the time of the incidents, he was wearing dark shoes, dark pants, a black winter hat with a Monster Energy logo on it and a plaid winter jacket, as well as an orange construction jacket. 

Police are appealing to the public for help identifying the man. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800- 222-TIPS or submit an anonymous tip online at
