ALBANY, GA (WALB) – There are thieves, and then there are dirty, low-down thieves like the two men who stole a jar being used to collect money for a blind child who needs an operation.

Surveillance video (coming this evening to this story) from T&S Tires on West Broad Avenue shows two men stroll by and grab the jar off the counter that was a donation site for seven year old Jacob Bradfield.

The jar had $140 in it that was going to be put toward his eye surgery. Store managers chased the thieves until they abandoned their stolen truck behind Pearly's on North Slappey.

"I hope if anybody knows who they are, that they would turn them in," said Lisa Cunningham of T & S Tires. "Because it's not right for them to take from a child that hasn't done anything to them."

The first man has the number "78" on the front of his shirt. The guy who takes the donation jar is about 5-foot-7, and wearing a black tank top.

If you can identify them, call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
