Thief steals poppy donation jar

Police in Nanaimo are on the lookout for a suspect who stole a poppy donation jar from the Subway restaurant in University Village Mall.

The theft happened Wednesday and Nanaimo Mounties are reviewing video security footage of the theft.

The jar contained about $20.

"We've got the guy on surveillance and we're just trying to identify him," said Const. Gary O'Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. "He just took it, threw it under his jacket and away he went."

The Royal Canadian Legion uses poppy donations to support its charity and bursary programs.
