COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Robert Knee is a proud Marine and a long time member of the Marine Corps Leage of Naples. Knee wants to know what happened to hundreds of dollars that's supposed to go to needy families.
"In January of this year, I came in possession of two cancelled checks that obviously had entries made on the payee lines that weren't there when the person wrote the check," said Knee.
The checks were written out to Toys for Tots. But Knee said someone altered them by adding "MCL" which would allow the League to deposit the money into the League's own account. The national foundation in charge of Toys for Tots doesn't even allow local groups to have bank accounts for Toys for Tots. Their operating procedures require that all donations process through the foundation.
"The bottom line is you break the law, we live in a society of laws, someone has to be accountable, so that's the reason I filed charge
WINK NEWS reached out to other members of the Marine League Corps of Naples. The Collier County Sheriff's Office said it's economic crimes unit is investigating Knee's complaint.
"I want to assure the public that any money given to us for Toys for Tots will be used for kids, nothing else," said Knee.
