A thief made off with hundreds of dollars in cash donations from a Victoria church Saturday night in the 2200-block of Dowler Place.

Chinese Pentecostal Church patrons noticed a broken window just before 10 p.m. after a suspicious man was seen leaving the premises, said Const. Mike Russell.

The thief is described as Caucasian, approximately five-foot-10 inches with a thin build and black curly hair and a scruffy light beard. He was wearing a black nylon jacket and black pants at the time.

Call the VicPD non-emergency line at 250-995-7654 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) with relevant information.
