HAMILTON, Ont. - Hamilton police say poppy donation boxes were stolen from two Tim Hortons restaurants this morning.
Police say a man placed an order at the Tim Hortons at 65 Ottawa Street North at about 5:30 a.m. and fled with two poppy donation boxes when the clerk turned away from the counter.
About 30 minutes later, police say the same thing happened at a Tim Hortons at 239 King Street West with a man matching the same description.
The suspect is described as an east Asian man in his 20s, five-foot-eight and 165 pounds with a medium build, short black hair and sporting a goatee.
He was wearing a dark blue jacket with a white stripe down the sleeves and a logo on the back, and dark jeans.
These incidents happened a day after police reported a poppy box stolen from a pizza shop in Toronto.
