A “Grinch” stole several hundred dollars of charitable donations from a Boca Raton church, police said.
Surveillance video showed the male suspect entering of the chapel of St. Joan of Arc Church at 370 Southwest 3rd St. at 1:11 p.m. on Saturday, police said in a news release.
The man, who is believed to be in his 40s, waited until the only other person there left, and then he went to the back of the room, where he spent a little more than 20 minutes breaking into the church’s charitable locker, according to police.
After he took out the money, he put the locker door back in place, police said.
No one else was seen entering or leaving the chapel.
Police ask anyone with information on the incident to call Det. Mark Horowitz at 561-338-1392 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
