Police: Christmas-Hating Ohioan Swipes Red Kettle

Monday, 30 Nov 2009 12:51 PM

 

MAUMEE, Ohio -- Police in northwest Ohio have arrested a man who they say swiped a Salvation Army red kettle full of donated money and pushed one of the charity's bell ringers to the ground.

Police in Maumee (maw-MEE') say 44-year-old Shawn Krieger of Toledo grabbed the kettle Saturday evening outside a general store. When the bell ringer tried to take the kettle back, police say Krieger pushed her down and said, "I can't stand you and your bell-ringing. I hate Christmas."

Police say Krieger drove off in a pickup truck with the kettle and tripod it was hanging from.

Krieger was charged Monday with robbery and held on $25,000 bond. The judge will assign a public defender to his case.

The Salvation Army estimates the kettle held $500 to $700.
