Brantford police are appealing to the public for information in relation to the theft of a Salvation Army clothing donation bin from 67 Charing Cross Street.
Police say the bin was stolen sometime between 6 p.m. on Thursday evening and 7 a.m. on Friday morning.
The bin is described as weighing 275 pounds, more than five and a half feet in height and four and a half feet in width. The bin is blue with the words ‘Salvation Army’ and the organization’s website labelled on two sides.
Investigators are looking for local residents who may have witnessed people and a vehicle in the area removing the bin and not realized a theft was in progress.
The bin was placed at the address to collect donations in support of the opening of another location of the Salvation Army in the city.
A spokesperson from the organization said the bin was believed to be half-full of clothing at the time of the theft.
The Salvation Army plans to host a clothing drive at 67 Charing Cross Street on Nov. 3.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Brantford police at 519-756-7050.
