Suspect Sought in Goodwill Donation Box Theft
DAYTON -- The thief in the security video acts like an innocent shopper inside the Goodwill store on East Fifth Street in the Oregon District, but he wasn't looking to buy.
When the employees were busy, he went to the front counter, cut the security cable attached to the donation box, and walked out with a collection of coins and cash.
Goodwill Easter Seals Communication Coordinator Kim Bramlage said the cash collected in their donation boxes goes toward 40 programs and services that help people with disabilities.
"Everything from sign language training for kids with autism to senior adult day service programs, to seniors with dementia who can't be by themselves during the day," Bramlage explains.
The desperate thief only made off with $10 in coins and cash, but Bramlage said those coins add up and make a real difference in our community.
"When people steal from the Goodwill, they are stealing from a non-profit organization that is here to help those in need."
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time this Goodwill store has been targeted. Earlier this month, a thief broke in through the front door and took the collection box full of cash.
The recent crime means donation boxes will no longer be put on the counters at the Fifth Street location. Bramlage said people will have to donate in different ways.
"When customers make purchases here, they can round up, and the difference would go to our programs and services as a donation."
Donations can also be made through the organization's website: https://www.gesmv.org
