The Lincoln Police Department reports a Walgreens employee reported seeing a man put on a Salvation Army apron left by the last volunteer bell-ringer at the pharmacy located at a busy Lincoln intersection. The man took off with the bell, the stand, the bucket, and the money.
The Salvation Army items taken were worth more than the donations; $458, according to police.
Police did recover the stand, bucket, and apron the next day, discarded between two nearby apartment complexes.
