Thief Steals Southampton Lions Collection Box

Members of the Lions Club are asking people to be on the look out for the missing yellow eyeglass collection box.

The yellow mailbox located on Second Street Pike near Taco Bell and across the street from JoAnn Fabric was stolen sometime between Wednesday, Nov. 14 and Saturday, Nov. 17.

Hundreds of pairs of eyeglasses have been deposited in that box by local residents to “Help the Lions Help the Blind," and now that box is gone.

Please help the Lions Club to get it back.

If you saw someone removing the box, or if you see the bright yellow mailbox in the back of a truck, on the side of the road, at a junk yard or anywhere, please call the Upper Southampton Police Department at their non emergency/voice mail number 215-364-5000.

someone probably stole it for scrap and got like $1 for it. I hope he gets his butt kicked!

They will most likely sell the glasses at a flea market. They should be arrested if they can be found
