Savannah-Chatham Metro police and the Salvation Army are looking for the man who they say stole a holiday donation kettle Tuesday night.

The man can be seen on security video taking a red kettle from a donation area outside Kroger on Mall Boulevard just before 8 p.m.

Several witnesses tried to chase the man but lost him in the area near Fox and Weeks Funeral Home.

The man is described as possibly in his early 20s, average to stocky build and about 5’ 6” tall. He was wearing a camouflage jacket, red pants, white socks and black slides.
