He is captured walking into the shop with another man, while a third stands at the door.

When a shop assistant turns away from the thief to walk behind the counter, he swipes a charity box and hides it under his jacket.

Shop owner Shaz Kadr said he tried to report the incident to South Yorkshire Police but ‘gave up’ after failing to get through on the 101 telephone system.

“Somebody must know who this is as the footage is very clear,” he said.

“I’ve seen them in the area before.

“To steal from charity really is the lowest of the low.

“In an ideal world I would like them banned from West Street for doing this.”
