KELOWNA - A man who stole a donation box attached to a drive thru window in Kelowna last month was caught on video and now RCMP want help in identifying the suspect.

The theft occurred around 2 a.m. on May 22 and was reported just after 10 a.m. Video surveillance shows a man walked up to the drive thru window of the Tim Hortons on Powick Road and within a minute had forced the entire donation box off the wall before fleeing on foot, RCMP say in a media release.

The donation box was collecting money for Camp Day and RCMP do not say how much money was in the box.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, 25 to 25 years old, 5’8” to 6’ tall and 180 to 210 lbs. He is balding with short hair and a stocky build. At the time he was wearing a two-toned grey hoodie with a white emblem, blue jeans and dark shoes.
