A Salvation Army red collection kettle stolen Sunday in Point Marion was found along the Monongahela River in the borough.

Ginny Knor, director of marketing and public relations for The Salvation Army's Western Pennsylvania Division, said a tripod, sign and an apron was also recovered.

Another apron and a bell have not been found.

The thieves apparently pried open the container, which contained a day's worth of donations. The abandoned kettle, however, contained just 91 cents,

According to a report by state police, a bell ringer was relieved from her duty at 7 p.m. at the Shop n' Save Express by a female with dark hair in her late 20s or early 30s dressed in a dark-colored jacket and neon fuzzy pants. The woman was accompanied by a white male wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to contact state police at Uniontown at 724-439-7111.
