Taylorsville Police are looking for the person(s) responsible for taking a charity collection box located at Dairy Queen’s drive-thru window.

Chief Toby Lewis said that night shift employees failed to remove the box after closing Monday night. It was not until Tuesday morning that other employees discovered the plastic box was missing.

Lewis called the theft “absolutely absurd,” especially since the box cost about $125, substantially more than the $30 it likely contained.

This marks the second time a collection box has been stolen from that location. Since the first theft, employees would remove the box each night at closing.

Donations collected are sent to the  Children’s Miracle Network, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by providing medical care, life-saving research, and preventative education regarding childhood diseases.
