We’re normally very jaded, but news of what happened at the cop-slay Dunkin’ Donuts in South Philly yesterday ended up taking us aback. Someone stole the donation jar for the family of slain police officer Chuck Cassidy from the North Philly fast food restaurant where he was shot:
A donation jar for the family of slain Philadelphia Police Officer Chuck Cassidy was stolen yesterday morning from the Dunkin’ Donuts where Cassidy was shot in October, a police spokesman said. Security video shows a man crawling through the drive-through window of the West Oak Lane doughnut shop at about 3:30 yesterday morning.
Once in the shop, he snaked across the floor and stole the jar off the counter. He fled shortly afterward. The donations were to benefit the slain officer’s family. The jar contained about $30 in cash, police said.
Another donation jar for officer Cassidy was stolen from a WaWa in Northeast Philly. Cassidy was killed while making a routine check on the Dunkin’ Donuts. An armed robber panicked and shot the unaware officer as he entered the restaurant.
