Police Seeking Man Who Stole Leukemia Research Donation Jar

Jar set up in memory of 8-year-old Isabella Pine is stolen from Lindenhurst 7-Eleven.

Police are asking for the public's help to find the man pictured above who they say stole a donation jar from a Lindenhurst 7-Eleven.

The jar to collect cash for leukemia research in memory of 8-year-old Isabella Pine, who died from the cancer in 2012, was snatched on Feb. 3 at 9:44 p.m. from the store located at 849 N. Greene Avenue. 

Isabella's mother, Dianne Pine, is the store's manager and she told WCBS 880 that more than $11,000 has been raised for cancer research since the jar was placed in the store right after Isabella's death. The jar had about $75 in it at the time it was stolen. 

Police said the thief is described as white, about 5-foot-7, 155 pounds with facial hair.

Suffolk County Crime Stoppers offers a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
