Police are investigating the theft of a fourth charity box in Ashford in less than a month.
The latest charity box was reported stolen from a fast food restaurant in Bank Street at 5.40pm on Thursday, June 15.
A man walked up to the counter, told the member of staff he was deciding what to order, and when her back was turned he grabbed the charity box from the side of the counter and made off.
Sergeant Jasmine Bloomfield of the Ashford Community Safety Unit said: "Stealing money destined for charity is a pretty heartless thing to do and we are keen to catch the offenders.
"We are asking anyone with information about any of the incidents to contact us. We are also urging the owners of shops and cafes to ensure their charity boxes are secured. The most effective way to do this is to chain them to their counters."
If you have any information phone Kent Police on 01843 222289 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting reference ZY/25755/17.
