LIBERTY — Liberty police are looking for a couple who took a donation can intended for Haiti earthquake relief from a restaurant.

Culver's manager Paul Clause says the can, clearly marked for the American Red Cross, disappeared Thursday evening after the young couple ordered their food.

A video shows the couple putting their bags of food on either side of the can, picking it up and walking out the door.

Clause says he's convinced the man and woman shown on the tape were acting together. He says it upsets him that someone would steal money intended to help others.

Well good for the couple...I'm sure they were in need of the money also. There are starving people right here in the united states, people w/o jobs, homes, food....just like Haiti. It enrages me that we can do so much for them, and raise so much for them, but...can not help our own. I don't even remember Katrina people got this much help.
