CONCORD — Police are seeking help to find the man they say stole from the “Donation Dinosaur” to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD).

Concord police Lt. Sean Ford said the theft occurred at Walmart last Tuesday and the suspect also stole a crowbar from Walmart, presumably to pry open the donation prop and get at the money.

Officials found the damaged donation container close to the Loudon Road superstore and most of the money was missing.

The store video captured the man entering and exiting the store and Concord police released images of him.

The man was wearing a long-sleeve, flannel style shirt, tan cargo shorts and a scally cap. Lt. Ford said the man appears to have a cast or a very heavy bandage on his hand.

Concord police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect and anyone with information on the man is urged to call Lt. Ford at 225-8600 or the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.

The news release came hours before the CHaD Battle of the Badges Baseball Classic to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth Friday night at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester.

Teams of police officers and firefighters from across the state faced off to benefit CHaD.
