NORFOLK, Va.- Surveillance video from inside the Hope House Thrift Shop shows a man stealing a donation jar, staff at the shop said.

The incident happened Wednesday afternoon. Staff members say they reported the incident to police.

The donation jar had between $30 and $50 in it. "For me it's more of the point that you could be so ballsy and just do that and take something that wasn't meant for you," said Frances Ross, the operational coordinator at the shop. "I'm angry. I'm disappointed."

Proceeds from the jar and the thrift shop go to the Hope House Foundation, a nonprofit that helps people with developmental disabilities.​ "I do believe in karma, so I do believe what's coming his way will come his way, but it's just really said," Ross said.

Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call police.
