Police Look for Woman Who Reportedly Stole Salvation Army Donation Kettles
Police are looking for a woman who reportedly stole Salvation Army donation kettles from outside two stores in Billings.
Sgt. Clyde Reid tells The Billings Gazette that bell ringers from the Salvation Army kettle campaign reported their donation kettles had been stolen from two locations Friday. The charitable campaign involves volunteers who ring bells and give out candy canes in front of businesses.
The first theft happened in front of the Hobby Lobby, and another theft was reported hours later at Scheels.
Police are searching for a woman in connection with both thefts. Reid says she posed as a volunteer, took the kettles and left in a white, four-door vehicle driven by a man.
She is described as 5-foot-6 with blond hair and glasses.
