Donation Thief Collared

An arrest in Wauseon comes fol­low­ing the theft of Christ­mas Cheer cans from area con­ve­nience stores.

The Bryan Times reports that 49 year old Don­ald McLeod of Arch­bold was charged on Tues­day with theft in con­nec­tion with that crime.

Accord­ing to the Ful­ton County Sheriff’s Office, McLeod would dis­tract store clerks, swipe dona­tion cans from the counter and then run. One of the stores caught his image, along with an image of his vehi­cle, on a secu­rity cam­era. The Sheriff’s Office released those images last week through Face­book and its Crime Stop­per net­work.

The num­ber of stores that were robbed and the amount of money stolen has not all been added up yet, but for now,

McLeod is in cus­tody at CCNO.
