The Salvation Army of Siouxland reports that one of its Red Kettles from stole early Tuesday morning from a Perkins Restaurant & Bakery in Sioux City, IA. The Salvation Army apparently doesn't arrange bell ringers for those late night hours, but I guess they leave the kettles out for late-night munchers who also feel charitable.
It was reported on ABC5 News that surveillance video captured footage of a woman entering the restaurant at 2:00 AM and leaving with the Red Kettle. It is unknown how much money was actually in the Red Kettle, but was estimated to contain between $25-$75.
The Salvation Army doubts that it will recover its stolen donations, but hopes that publicity of the theft will result in additional donations to make up for the loss.
