The two suspects were captured on video walking from a loading bay area directly to a large money donation box. One at the donation box the suspects broke the lock and stole and undisclosed amount of cash. The donation bin contained contributions for Jeneece Place, which is a home where children, and their families, can stay while receiving medical care in Victoria.
“During this Break and Enter it appears as if the donation box was specifically targeted” said Sgt. Jereme Leslie. “Crimes like this are tremendously appalling as the suspects are stealing funds that are intended for families who are going through a difficult time dealing with medical issues.”
