    Most of us love to eat, and if we can help out a worthwhile charity at the same time it's icing on the cake, or ketchup on the burger, to use a phrase more befitting of this week's Military Matters.More >>
    The Four Winds Restaurant in Cusseta is known for the world-famous Ranger Burger, and it sold a bunch of them recently… enough to raise $1,500 for charity.

    The promotion, called Grubbin to Give, put 50 percent of the day's proceeds in the coffers of the Warrior Outreach Program.

GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

We're trying to get justice for a senior citizen ripped off after a mistake anyone can make.

A woman dropped an envelope with more than $800 inside while she was at Third Federal Savings & Loan in Garfield Heights. A stranger can be seen on video walking in, picking up the envelope, and walking out.

The incident happened last week at the branch on Rockside Road. 

We've obtained video showing the woman dropping the envelope at the teller counter. She leaves, then moments later a man walks in, picks up the envelope, and wanders around the bank. 

Then, he leaves -- with the cash.

Garfield Heights police need your help identifying and finding that man. Instead of doing "the right thing," and going to a teller to return the money he found, he took off.

Investigators say he can be charged with theft. Our Ed Gallek has Crimestoppers involved. Look at the bank pictures. Anyone with a tip is asked to call 216-252-7463 or email Crimestoppers. Tips can also be text to TIP657. A reward is available.
