Video: Man steals charity tin from bar

This is the moment a heartless thief was caught on CCTV stealing a sick kids charity tin from the counter of an Aberdeen pub.

The elderly suspect was looking around the bar for witnesses before he snatched the collection tin and then escaped by hiding it in his jacket.

Pub chiefs have since branded the theft “absolutely disgusting” and released CCTV in a bid to catch the man who was wearing a flatcap and glasses.

The tin contained about £100 which would have gone to the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS).

Police have been informed of the theft, which happened at Wagley’s Bar in Aberdeen at around 9.40pm on Sunday night.
