Police are hunting for two suspected thieves after a charity tin for bushfire relief was stolen from a Melbourne fast food restaurant.
A man and a woman were filmed on CCTV entering the store on the Nepean Highway in Frankston on Monday.
The video shows a man wearing a dark grey tracksuit and Nike cap and a woman in an Adidas jumper enter the store about 9.30pm and make their way to the front counter, as if to place an order.
The pair position themselves near the charity tin and the man allegedly snatches the tin and places it in the woman's handbag.
The pair then left the store.
Police have released images of the two people they hope can assist in their enquiries.
