Mich. Man Gets Jail Time For Swiping Charity Jar

Posted: Updated:

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to jail time for stealing a charity collection jar for sick and injured children at a Detroit-area gas station.

Chad Lendon Stewart pleaded guilty to a felony charge of larceny in a building. The 39-year-old from Manitou Beach was sentenced Monday in Oakland County Circuit Court to 90 days behind bars.

WHMI-FM in Howell reports Stewart was given credit for 46 days served. He also must serve 18 months of probation, during which he can't re-enter the Milford gas station he robbed, drink alcohol or go into bars.

A store clerk at the gas station last month reported the theft of a collection jar for the Children's Miracle Network, which raises money for children's hospitals and medical research.
