Char­ity box theft shocks lo­cals

Richmond Hill Post - - Neighbourh­ood News - — BR

Days af­ter a video of the theft of a cancer char­ity box from a Richmond Hill restau­rant went vi­ral, a woman has turned her­self in.

On May 23, a 63-year-old woman from Richmond Hill turned her­self in to the York Re­gional Po­lice [ YRP] #2 District Head­quar­ters and was placed un­der ar­rest. She was charged with theft un­der $5,000 and pos­ses­sion of a property ob­tained by crime un­der $5,000. Po­lice say the ac­cused grabbed the char­ity box af­ter plac­ing her or­der, while the em­ployee’s back was turned. When a se­cu­rity video of the brazen crime sur­faced, lo­cals were hor­ri­fied.

There is no word yet from YRP on whether or not the amount stolen has been re­cov­ered and whether or not it will be re­turned to the char­ity.
