Police investigating donation box crimes at OLV Basilica in Lackawanna

Lackawanna police sought public assistance Thursday in identifying the suspect or suspects who were video taped from behind as donation boxes at Our Lady of Victor Basilica were pilfered both Monday and Tuesday.

In the grainy church footage on Monday a man wearing a dark coat is filmed from behind as he picks up a donation box and walks out.

On Tuesday, a male suspect, either the same man or a different man, is filmed pulling at a donation box but leaves without the box.

Information can be given to Lackawanna police at 827-6495.
