South Brunswick Police Seek Charity Donation Thief
South Brunswick Police are looking for a man they say stole the donations from a collection container at the register of a diner.
Images have been posted by police of the man picked up the Hugs for Brady Foundation container at the Jersey Diner on Route 130 late on the afternoon of Sunday, March 23 and walked off with an estimated $150 worth of donations.
Black-and-white surveillance video aired by ABC 7 shows the man alone at the register at the front of the register leaving money on the counter to pay his bill, grabbing the plastic container and walking out the front door. Police say the suspect was gone before anyone noticed the money was missing.
The suspect is described by police on their website as a white male in his late 40s or early 50s with grey hair, mustache, a significant bald spot on the back of his head and wearing a blue zipper hooded sweat shirt.
According to their website, Hugs for Brady is an organization “established to help children battling cancer and assist in research to ultimately find a cure for pediatric cancer.” . Founder Sherrie Wells, the organization’s founder, told ABC 7 she is outraged at the theft. “I couldn’t believe that somebody would stoop to this level and steal from a child that was battling cancer, it’s horrible,”
Anyone with information is asked to call South Brunswick Police at 732-329-4000 ext. 7475.
