St. Louis County Police say they have arrested a suspect connected to the theft of a Salvation Army Red Kettle.
The bucket was stolen from a Fenton grocery store on December 12. The suspect used bolt cutters to cut the padlock off the bucket while the bell-ringer volunteer was on break. Police also say that the suspect confessed to stealing a second Salvation Army bucket from Crystal City.
The Salvation Army joins the growing list of organizations providing aid in areas hit by yesterday's tornadoes.
Canteen trucks were sent to several places, including New Minden, Illinois. The canteen is used to serve hot meals to first responders while rescue and recovery efforts continue. You can donate money to the Salvation Army by texting STORM to 80888 and then reply YES to the confirmation to finalize the donation.
