A sporting goods store in Williams Lake is warning other businesses after a donation box was stolen from the store.
Taylor Hemond, an employee at Caribou Ski Source For Sports on First Avenue North, said around 3:16 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10, a woman entered the store, removed a spinal cord research donation box and placed it in another part of the store with some clothing.
After pacing around for a few moments, she returned to the spot where she’d put the box, tucked it inside her hoodie under her arm and proceeded to walk out of the store with it.
Hemond, who provided the Tribune with surveillance video of the incident, said he and other staff did not recognize the woman and did not realize she had taken the donation box until afterwards.
“There wasn’t very much money in the box, but we wanted to let other people know to keep a look out for her,” Hemond said.
