York Police are looking for help from the public to identify a suspect wanted for the theft of a SickKids Foundation donation box in Vaughan.
On Tuesday, October 25, at about 8:20 p.m., a man ordered food at a restaurant in the area of Highway 7 West and Ansley Grove Road.
According to police, the man was waiting for his food when he noticed a Children’s Miracle Network donation box full of cash to be donated to SickKids Foundation on the counter.
