Man allegedly steals charity donation jar

By Damon Lawrence

A man is suspected of stealing a jar containing money donated to Operation REACH from 518 Liquor and Wine in Rockwood.
Operation REACH is a local charity that gives needy children the opportunity to buy Christmas presents. Police said the jar contained at least $40.
Authorities have identified the suspect thanks to surveillance video and a damning piece of evidence that was left behind — a job application for the store.
The application had the man’s name, driver’s license number, date of birth and address.
The officer checked the information and found the photo attached to the driver’s license was the same person he saw in the video.
Police planned to take out a warrant on the man for theft under $500.
