The Bow Bar in Edinburgh had been raising cash for a memorial for the Anzac War, but the collection tin was snatched on Sunday.
A fuming Scots pub boss has exposed two “scumbags” after the pub’s charity tin was swiped at the weekend.
The Bow Bar in Edinburgh had been raising funds for an Anzac War memorial, before their coin box was snatched by two thieves on Sunday, June 12.
Shocking footage shared by management shows the pair blazingly lift and tap the tin as the barman turns his back.
Before they even order drinks, they go on to eye up the donations and weigh up options on how to snatch the tin.
Then, as they finish their pints, one of the thieves callously pockets the cash before making a swift exit.
Despite the bar being full of punters, the heartless duo even managed to burn through a rope to release the tin from the bar.
Posting images of the two men on Twitter, Bow Bar bosses described the pair as “low life scum”.
A post reads: “These are the two ar******s who stole our collection tin off the bar last night for an ANZAC War memorial.
“They burnt through the rope with a lighter and snatched it.”
It is currently unknown how much money was stolen during the heartless act.
Management reported the incident to police, who confirmed that enquiries into the incident are ongoing.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “We received a report around 6.30pm on Sunday, June 12, of a sum of cash being stolen from a premises in West Bow, Edinburgh.
“Enquiries are ongoing.”
