Police say man stole donation jar and table it was bolted to

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A man accused of stealing a donation jar for disabled veterans along with the table it was attached has turned himself in to police.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1RH9it9 ) police say the victim was collecting donations in front of a Wal-Mart store when David Kirk approached the donation table. Kirk tried to take the money-filled jar, but when he found it was bolted to the table, he picked up the entire table, put it in bed of his pickup truck and drove away.

Kirk turned himself in after police obtained an arrest warrant.

He is charged with first-degree robbery. On Sunday, he was being held on a $10,000 bond. He has a court hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

Jail records do not indicate if he has an attorney.
