A BRAZEN thief stole a charity box from the counter of a fast food restaurant – while ordering a chicken meal.
The bearded customer was caught on CCTV laughing with staff before stuffing the Myton Hospice collection tin down the front of his trousers.
He struck at Pepe’s Piri Piri restaurant on Leamington High Street at 4pm on January 31.
The restaurant has now posted footage of the theft on their Facebook page in a bid to catch the crook.
They wrote: “The Myton Hospice charity box was stolen off the counter. Please share and catch this guy.”
It is the second time in just two weeks that charity boxes have been stolen from the counter.
The first theft took place on January 9 when a man wearing glasses was caught on CCTV grabbing a collection box before hiding it in his coat.
Warwickshire Police are investigating the thefts.
