A man who used to work for Disney World in Orlando is facing felony charges for allegations that he stole and then sold thousands of dollars in costumes and props from the park during the time that he worked there.

Last August, an animatronic from the Epcot area of Disney World valued at $7,000 went missing and an investigation into the theft was opened.

In November, 24-year-old Patrick Allen Spikes, a park employee at the time, was one of the suspects questioned about the incident. When speaking with the authorities Spikes said he did not steal anything from the theme park. He was still taken into custody for resisting arrest based on allegations that he had been uncooperative and argumentative when speaking with law enforcement, but the charges were dropped shortly afterward.

A man at the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando has been accused of trying to kidnap a little girl while she was separated from her mother for a short period of time.

A mom and her 9-year-old daughter were recently visiting Universal Studios in Florida when they got disconnected from each other for what was reported as only minutes.

The parent and child were at the part of the park dedicated to Harry Potter when they became disjoined, and the little girl made her way into the locker room where people store their belongings when visiting attractions and going on rides.
