"We have 7,000 kids in Calgary between the ages of zero and 14 registered for the toy program so we are asking for new, unwrapped toys to help us make sure each of them has something under the tree on Christmas morning", Livick added.

"Being able to pay with a card, you're not getting rid of physical money so you don't really think much about it, but when you're you know taking money from yourself or whatever you're noticing that there is money missing", said Johnson.

Police Chief Brian Podany told the local Fox9 that 'Right away when it was referred to us was, we realized we have a Grinch out there- two Grinches'. "That someone would do that, it's the principle - regardless of how much was in the kettle at the time". Why would someone do this to people?

Surveillance video shows two people wearing hooded sweatshirts walking up to the donation kettle at the Northtown Cub Foods in Blaine.


One produces a bolt cutter and uses it to remove the bucket from the stand, while the other appears to be keeping watch. They then took off in a gray or silver Chevy Trailblazer.

Blaine police have posted the footage and a photo of the suspects' vehicle on the department's Facebook page. If caught, the suspects will likely face felony charges, including damage to property and possession of a theft tool.
