PENROSE, Colo. (KRDO) -- Security camera video at the My Neighbor's Cupboard, a food pantry in Penrose, caught a man stealing hundreds of pounds of food from the pantry and loading it up into his vehicle.
According to Amanda Suddoth, the manager of My Neighbor's Cupboard, the man filled his vehicle up with food twice early Thursday morning. The first theft happened at 1:50 a.m. and a second time at 2:30 a.m.
The food was sitting in front of the building and was going to be brought inside the following morning.
Suddoth says around 1,000 pounds of food was stolen, enough to properly feed 45 families. The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says the thefts added up to about $2,000 worth of food and supplies.
FCSO said the suspect took off in a Chevy Trailblazer and is wanted for a misdemeanor theft charge.
My Neighbor's Cupboard said that before the COVID-19 pandemic, they served about 1,000 families. Currently, they're serving closer to 5,000 families.
