Thief grabs gumball machine, leaves cash behind

An animal shelter in Sacramento is looking for a thief.  He broke into the building and stole a giant gumball machine.

It happened last Wednesday.  Surveillance video captured the man entering the Front Street Animal Shelter through a doggie door and then, in what could be a comedy scene, tries to take the gumball machine through the doggie door.

He eventually takes the machine outside and throws it over a barbed wire fence.

The shelter says there was also a donation box filled with money right across from the gumball machine.  The thief didn't touch that.

The shelter hopes someone recognizes the suspect so he can be brought to justice.
