O’FALLON, MO (KTVI) — A kitchen cooler was stolen Sunday morning off the back dock of B Halls Family Grill in O’Fallon, Missouri.

The theft was captured on a security camera and Christy Hall, the owner of the restaurant, has posted the photos of the theft on her Facebook page.

Now this thief may be the most recognized face in O’Fallon.

The refrigerated unit kept salads and cold cuts for the kitchen.  As one of the cooks stated,  “It’s a huge part of the kitchen.”

The crew at B Halls believes it’s just a matter of time before someone puts a name with the face in the video.

After the theft, the police were called and the reports filed, but Hall believed more could be done. She thought she could use Facebook to share the video and the photos, “We couldn’t just let it go.”

She posted her story and his picture on the restaurant’s Facebook page. Hall explained, “I don’t know, but sure, give it a shot!”

Waitress Kelly Drury thinks this will help, “I think we have such a good customer base, with this going out on Facebook and it just spreading as fast as it did, O’Fallon is not that big.”

“Maybe he wasn’ t smart enough to realize we had a camera, so I sure hope he gets caught,” adds Hall.

The restaurant crew thinks it’s just a matter of time before someone recognizes this face. “Somebody has to know who he is,” says Hall.

Anyone who has information about the individual in the security video is asked to call Detective Mountain at 636-379-5534.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
