It was on Thursday, that police released video footage that shows a woman with dark hair and wearing a jacket with a leopard-style print standing at the cash register before picking up a the donation box from the counter.

Allegations are she carried it back to her table and hid it in her bag.

According to restaurant employees, the box was filled with money at the time but it is not clear how much.
