A Nepean grocer is looking for a man they say was caught on video stealing a Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario donation box.

Surveillance video showed the man in McDaniel's Independent Grocer on Grant Carman Drive in Nepean. While appearing to talk on the phone, the man puts the box under his coat.

The theft happened on November 5, but no one realized the box was even missing until two days later when a CHEO Foundation representative dropped by to pick it up.

The grocer is asking anyone who can identify the thief to call police or Crime Stoppers.
