Police seek man filmed stealing donation bin from Malden Burger King

MALDEN, MASS. (WHDH) - Police in Malden are searching for a man who was caught on video Monday stealing a donation bin to support local schools from a Burger King parking lot.

Malden police shared video Tuesday of an Everett man accused of stealing the bin from the fast-food restaurant along Route 99.

In a post on the department’s Facebook page, video of the incident appears to show a man identified as Shawn O’Leary loading the bin into an SUV.

“After a brief struggle to load the donation bin, Shawn O’Leary placed the bin in a vehicle and fled southbound on Broadway toward Everett,” police said.

The video showed O’Leary fleeing the parking lot with one of his car doors still open.

It’s not clear how much money was in the bin.

Anyone with information on O’Leary’s whereabouts is asked to contact police.
