First Time In 20 Years Kettle Stolen In SF



Bookmark and Share

The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign kicked off in Sioux Falls on Friday and, already, someone has tried to steal a kettle.

Police say a kettle was stolen from the Get 'N Go Gas Station on West 12th Street. Police found the suspects when they responded to the report of two people beating on a car on West 10th Street just after midnight Sunday morning.

When the officer arrived, he heard 27-year-old Kristin Moller telling the man with her to run. The man pulled out a salvation army kettle from his coat. The woman began pushing the officer to keep him away from the man. As Moller was being arrested, he ran.

The two tried to pry the kettle open but were unsuccessful.

Major Thomas Riggs with the The Salvation Army in Sioux Falls said, "We make sure our kettles are secure. the kettle stand itself weighs close to 75 lbs., it's hard to carry away. we lock the kettles on to the location. the kettle worker does not have a key and the driver who is picking up the kettle doesn't have a key to unlock the kettle."

This is the first time in more than 20 years that a kettle in Sioux Falls has been taken. Police know who the male suspect is. Moller was arrested for obstruction, resisting arrest, petty theft and intentional damage to property.
