The theft happened on Wednesday night (April 3), between the hours of 11.55pm and 12.05am when a male entered the Golden Treasure Chinese, at Gilpinstown Road and collected some food.

A police spokesman said: “This male then stole a charity box from the counter and left with his food and the charity box, which contained money to go to those in need.

“There is thankfully great CCTV of this incident and the male in question is shown very clearly (it is a nice clear picture of his face).
