Poppy fund theft suspect charged in Edmonton
A man is facing numerous charges after a string of poppy fund thefts in Edmonton leading up to Remembrance Day.
Police are crediting the public for calling in with tips after police released images from a security video.
A thief made off with poppy donation boxes from four different locations — convenience stores and gas stations — in north Edmonton on Nov. 9 and 10, police said.
Last week police said as much as $400 may have been taken.
James Trevor Hollar, 25, was arrested and charged Tuesday with four counts of theft under $5,000 and four counts of possession of stolen property.
He was also arrested on three outstanding warrants and faces five charges of breaching probation.
