Minnesota Man Arrested After Stealing Cancer Donation Box

(KARE) A man is facing criminal charges after police say he stole a donation box for childhood cancer from a fast food restaurant Tuesday.

Employees at Culver's called Eagan Police shortly after 9:30 p.m. and reported that a man had grabbed a box filled with cash for pediatric brain tumor research and left the restaurant. They said he was still in the parking lot in a red minivan.

When officers arrived the 38-year-old man had already driven away but they caught up, pulled the van over and found the donation box inside.

Employees of the restaurant were called to identify the suspect, which they did without hesitation. He is charged by citation with theft of a charitable donation.
