Salvation Army Worker Walks Off With Bell, Kettle
HALL COUNTY, Ga. — Police arrested a man who stole a Salvation Army kettle, uniform and bell early Tuesday morning.
The Salvation Army told Channel 2’s Eric Philips they put out an alert across Metro Atlanta for Ernest Mize, 41, who it believed may have been trying to illegally collect donations after walking off the job with Salvation Army property last Friday.
Lt. Matt Cunningham of the Salvation Army told Philips that Mize, also known as Ernest Jackson, prematurely packed up his post and left with the kettle and cash. It was his first day on the job.
