Salvation Army kettle stolen

LAWTON, Okla_The local Salvation Army branch suffered an unfortunate setback Tuesday when a kettle was stolen from a bell ringer.

Salvation Army officials say that two teens acted together. One distracted the volunteer bell ringer while the other grabbed the kettle, then they both got away on skateboards.

The kettle was taken from in front of the Country Mart on 67th and Cache. The Commander of the local Salvation Army, Captain Ernest Hull, told us that the kettle had about $250.

"Well we'd certainly like justice," he said. "If we can catch these young thieves, we will prosecute them. And I think they should be made to do some community service to give back to the community for what they were trying to steal."

Fortunately, Captain Hull believes the theft was caught on camera, and that there is a good chance of finding the teenagers.
