A 63-year-old woman was charged Friday with the theft of a cancer charity donation box at a restaurant in Richmond Hill, Ont., in March.
Emma Anderson turned herself in to York Regional Police after surveillance footage of the theft was released Thursday, when police were able to obtain video related to the incident from the criminal investigations bureau, according to Constable Laura Nicolle.
Security footage from a Hero Certified Burgers location near Yonge Street and Weldrick Road shortly before 4 p.m. on March 25 shows a woman paying for her order and zipping up her purse. The woman then takes a donation box from the counter and calmly walks out of the restaurant.
Ms. Anderson has been charged with theft under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000. She is scheduled to appear in court on June 4.
