Two Mineral Ridge residents accused of stealing $50 in change that was supposed to be donated a charity that fights against leukemia turned themselves into police on Monday.
Kimberly Chupa, who turns 43 on Saturday, and Duane Moore, 45, both of Main Street, were booked in the Trumbull County Jail on misdemeanor theft charges. They will be arraigned in Niles Municipal Court.
Police said Moore and Chupa walked into the Ser Market on Main Street and walked around the store. Officers said surveillance video shows Chupa stealing a candy bar and a handful of change from the donation jar before fleeing.
Minutes later, Moore paid for some items, but stole the jar while he exited the store.
Reports said the jar was found empty near the building.
The owner of the Ser Market said he will replace the $50 the pair took from the Leukemia society.
