Man Caught On Tape Stealing Donation Jar Surrenders

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A man accused of stealing a donation jar for a lung transplant patient from a convenience store in Glassport has turned himself in.

Keith Hubbard, of Monroeville, was allegedly caught on surveillance video stealing the jar from the Hot Spot convenience store over the weekend.

In the video, the suspect distracts the clerk by purchasing scratch lottery tickets. When she’s not looking, he puts the jar on the ground and has a child carry it out of the store.

The donations were for Loretta Dibler who suffers from Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, a disease which scars her lungs. A lung transplant is her only hope.

Hubbard is facing charges of retail theft, conspiracy and corruption of a minor.

  7. Mr. Friendship says:

    My brother works in loss prevention at a retail store. He tells me that parents will have their kids steal for them thinking that if anybody says anything that they can blame it on the kid and walk away, because the kid’s record is expunged when they turn 18.

    These parents need some role models.

  8. Mr. Friendship says:

    It took him the better part of half of his day to realize he’s an ass.
