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.
