CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Police are looking for the man who walked off with a donation jar that contained cash headed for the Children’s Hospital of Richmond.

The man suspected in the October 21 crime was captured on store security video walking into the Walmart at 5700 Hopkins Road.

“Surveillance cameras captured images of him as he walked straight to a table in the center of the store. On that table was a jar containing cash donations intended for the Children’s Hospital of Richmond. He took the jar off the table, walked from the store and got into a burgundy or maroon sedan,” a Chesterfield Police Department Crime Solvers spokesperson said.

Police described the suspect as a black male in his 20s.

“He had facial hair on his chin, and wore brown boots, blue denim jeans, a dark-colored, three-quarter-length coat and a tan hat,” the spokesperson said.

Anyone with information was asked to call Crime Solvers hotline at 804-748-0660.
