STREETSBORO, Ohio -- An investigation into a charity Thanksgiving meal heist has found the dinners weren't actually stolen at all.

Thirteen dinners to feed more than 100 people intended for The Christian Cupboard were mistakenly picked up by another food pantry on Monday. The "theft" occurred at the Valvoline Instant Oil Change on Route 14.

So far, several organizations have donated $600 to The Christian Pantry to make up for the loss.

The Streetsboro Police Department stresses the meals were taken by accident, and the incident was a misunderstanding.
