2 Texans on Probation Accused of Stealing Christmas Toys

Men allegedly took toys from Toys for Kids in Brownwood

Two Central Texas men on probation and doing community service for a holiday gift program have been accused of stealing donated toys.

Both face probation revocation after allegedly taking items from Toys For Kids in Brownwood.

The Brownwood Bulletin reports 20-year-old Bubba Thomas Vannoy of Brownwood and 19-year-old Cory Evan Lyon of Rising Star were arrested Tuesday.

Bond has been set at $50,000. Jail records Wednesday did not list attorneys for Vannoy and Lyon.

Records show the men were accused of burglary and engaging in organized criminal activity after 2009 break-ins at some schools. Each was sentenced to 10 years of deferred adjudication probation.

Charity founder Wanda Thacker Martin says a volunteer last Friday reported the two men allegedly putting toys in their vehicles. The items were recovered.
