LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The Salvation Army says it's become the victim of a real-life Grinch, as someone stole a red kettle outside the Kroger store at the Summit.
It happened about 6 p.m. Wednesday, "right under the nose" of the bell ringer, the Salvation Army says. The Kroger manager and a customer tried to chase the thief, who got away. However, they did manage to write down the car's license plate number. No one was hurt.
Tiffany Ruelas was the bell ringer that night. She says, "I stood out here for 9 hours to get that money for people who don't have anything and for someone to come up in two seconds and it be gone is frustrating."
The particular location receives about $300-$400 in donations every day.
Lt. Boris Davis with the Salvation Army says, "It happens every year at least somewhere, and it's something we alert our bell ringers to when they go through training."
Bell ringers are told to stand in front of their kettles so people can see them, be aware of their surroundings, and never to give chase.
Lt. Davis says people who commit such crimes are often people in dire financial straits, who are the very people the Salvation Army tries to help.
To donate to The Salvation Army's Kettle Fund, send a check payable to:
The Salvation Army P.O. Box 1149 Louisville, KY 40201.
