New West Police are now looking for witnesses who may be able to provide a description of the suspect. Police believe that the suspect was wearing a hooded sweatshirt at the time.
“It’s disgraceful and disheartening that someone would steal donations that support our veterans,” said Sergeant Sanjay Kumar in a statement.
“If anyone saw who took the donation box we ask you to reach out to us.”
