About $5,000 in donations was stolen from VFW Post 5864 in Greenwood, sparking anger among veterans and the community that they serve.
GREENWOOD, Ind. - About $5,000 in donations was stolen from VFW Post 5864 in Greenwood, sparking anger among veterans and the community that they serve.
Police said someone who had visited the post pried open a locker and stole $5,000. VFW members discovered the theft the following day.
"They took a tire iron and forced the rod off, opened (the locker) and got in there," Commander Steve Milbourn said.
Money raised throughout the year goes toward relief fund set aside for aid for veterans. The theft has sparked outrage among post members.
"They stole from not only the entire membership, but they stole from the community," member Ralph Schuster said.
"Dollars are hard to come by and when someone decides they need our dollars for their personal use more than we need them to benefit the community, it's angering," member Steve Keever said.
Since the theft, the post has received an outpour of support and more donations from members of the community.
Police have yet to name any suspects or make an arrest in the case.
