Thief steals estimated $50 from Salvation Army kettles


A thief broke into the Salvation Army Thrift Store in Hilo Thursday night and stole all the cash donations inside two kettles, the organization said. The money had not been counted, but thrift store manager Dio Parong estimated the loss at about $50, based on daily collections.

Parong said the store’s closets and drawers were opened, as if someone was looking specifically for cash. None of the store’s valuable items, including jewelry and koa wood pieces, was taken, the organization said. The Salvation Army reported the theft to police.
