A charity tin containing donations of more than £500 was stolen during a break-in at a takeaway in Market Deeping.
At 2.30am on Friday last week, a man broke into The Curry Hut in High Street, Market Deeping, smashing the bottom panel of the front door. He got away with a William and Kate money box, containing cash that had been collected for local charities.
Police believe that the thief approached the takeaway and left the area via Godsey Lane.
Takeaway owner, Jabeer Shabaaz was shocked to find out the news. He said: “To steal a charity box is disgusting. I hope that the police find whoever did this.”
Jabeer is offering a £100 reward to anyone who can provide any information in relation to the theft, which will lead to an arrest and conviction.
The takeaway, which is located opposite Market Deeping Police Station, raises funds for a number of local charities throughout the year. Customers who visit the takeaway make generous donations to help local causes.
Anyone with any information regarding this crime should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 313 of Friday, August 21.
