South Florida man accused of shoplifting more than $2 million in toys and was addicted to Toys R Us and Thanked CVS for funding his worldwide travels Tamarac man reportedly boasted he'd stolen enough 'to fill an entire Toys R Us' The investigation began when nearly $900 of Lego sets vanished midday from the Toys R Us store in Boynton Beach. Before it was over, authorities would be tailing the alleged mastermind believed to have stolen more than $2 million of toys from Toys R Us stores from Maine to California. The suspect: a 47-year-old, globe-trotting Tamarac man who lives with his mother and his nine cats — what he calls his "cat family." Broward sheriff's detectives say he accomplished his personal goal of stealing in all 50 states. His name is Ignatius "Michael" Pollara, and he's suspected of being one of South Florida's most prolific shoplifters. His criminal case is one that leaves even veteran law enforcement officers shaking their heads in disbelief. In a span of about 200 days, reward cards linked to him were handed to cashiers at 139 Toys R Us stores in 27 states, according to court records. There was one two-week stretch when the cards were used up the East Coast from Palm Beach Gardens to Bangor, Maine, and then back down to Virginia — 23 stores in 11 states. A day before his August arrest, Broward sheriff's detectives watched him and an admitted accomplice visit 21 stores in central Florida in less than 24 hours, according to court records. They said they found the bounty from that spree when they searched Pollara's cluttered home strewn with boxes and bags. He's spent the last 10 months in jail awaiting trial and writing letters to the judge claiming all sorts of things.  (Source
