A Southern California man who stole 3500 Pillow Pets from an Oceanside warehouse has avoided jail.
The North County Times reports Danny Ray Wright, of Carlsbad, was sentenced Tuesday to 15 days of community service and three years of probation. He pleaded guilty to grand theft and burglary.
Prosecutors say Wright stole US$84,000 worth of the popular animal-shaped toys and sold about $11,000 worth on eBay.
The Pillow Pets maker, CJ Products, says Wright was an independent contractor and was allowed to sell some pillows but never paid the company. Beginning in January, he began pilfering Pillow Pets by sneaking them out of the warehouse.
