*****PLEASE SHARE*****

Yesterday approximately 2:50-3pm at the white oak station in Clinton, MO on second across from Pizza Hut a DARK BLAZER pulled up and drove off with a BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse) donation bucket. 

Now, we could talk all day about how what absolutely low life's could possibly steal from such a great organization.. please if you know by chance who these scum might be, please let me know. 

The guy with the hat is the one who actually walked out with it, thanks to the other guy who pointed and told him to. I would like to add that this money is used to empower abused children in any way necessary. This could be through means such as therapy. 

Know that you sir have just stolen what may become the only thing that serves as peace to a suffering child. I hope we find you, but if by chance we don't, I hope you get yours.

The Clinton Police Department phone number is (660)-885-2679.
