CALGARY -- Airdrie RCMP say this theft was no laughing matter after a man used a rubber chicken to steal a donation box from a Tim Hortons at CrossIron Mills.

Investigators say a man went into the fast-food outlet at the mall about 24 kilometres north of Calgary just before 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 11, walked up to the counter and placed a rubber chicken over a donation box to conceal it.

He then left, carrying the chicken, and the box.

The suspect is described as:

  • A Caucasian male
  • Wearing a blue sweater or jacket and a black balaclava
  • Holding a rubber chicken

Anyone with information is asked to call Airdrie RCMP at 403-945-7200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
