DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The Salvation Army in Des Moines says someone stole one of the Red Kettles it uses to collect donations.

The Red Kettle and its stand were taken from a Walmart Supercenter in West Des Moines sometime after 6 p.m. Friday, during a shift when the kettle wasn't staffed with a bell ringer. They kettle contained an unknown amount of money.

Another Red Kettle and stand were taken from a HyVee store in southern Des Moines about a week ago, but in that incident the kettle was empty.

The Salvation Army says the replacement and shipping costs for one Red Kettle is nearly $300.

Anyone who may have witnessed the Friday theft is asked to call West Des Moines police.

The Red Kettle campaign runs from Nov. 9 through Dec. 24.
