Donations were to help a girl battling cancer
Stealing at the expense of a seven-year-old girl with cancer.
Pinal County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a couple of guys who stole donation jars intended for the young girl.
The first theft occurred last month at a Walgreens in San Tan Valley. Sheriff Paul Babeu says the man walked into the store, grabbed the jar that had been sitting next to the cash register, and walked out. About $300 dollars was stolen. Police are looking for a white man between 19 and 28, regular to muscular build, 5'8" to 6', between 175-to-200 pounds.
A couple of weeks later, a second man pulled the same heist at a different Walgreens. About $100 was stolen in that crime. That thief is described as being a white man between 16 and 24, thin build, 5'8" to 5'9", between 150-to-175 pounds. He also has a goatee with light blonde or red hair. It isn't known whether the two thefts are connected.
The donation jars were placed in the stores by the parents of the seven-year-old. They had planned to use the money to cover expenses for food. The Pinal County Sheriff's Department is now donating $500 to the family.
