Charity Box Thieves Condemned
Police in Bournemouth are looking for thieves who stole a charity collection box from a shop in Moordown – they've released CCTV images of a man and a woman they're looking for.
The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal charity box was taken from the Tesco Express store on Wimborne Road at approximately 8.25am on Sunday, 6th November 2011.
The exact amount of cash that was stolen is not known.
Sergeant Andy Edwards, North Bournemouth Deputy Neighbourhood Inspector, said:
“This theft was a heartless act that has taken money, generously donated by the public, away from an extremely worthy cause.
“I believe a man entered the store and cut a chain to release the charity collection box, before concealing it under his jacket and leaving the store.
“I am now able to release CCTV images of a man and a woman that I am keen to speak to in connection with this incident.
“I would urge these two people, and anyone who recognises them, to contact Dorset Police immediately.
“This was a despicable and callous theft and I am committed to bringing those responsible to justice.”
Anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101.
