Cops Hunt for Suspect They Say Stole Box of Donations Meant for Wounded Soldiers

The sheriff calls the case his S.C.U.M.B.A.G. of the week: Suspected Criminal Unconcerned With Morals or Basic Acts of Goodness.

Cops in Florida say they're in search of a man who allegedly swiped a donation box meant to benefit wounded soldiers.

Dubbing the case his "S.C.U.M.B.A.G. of the week," Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood says the suspect "walked up to the counter and took the troop donation box while employees were helping other customers" at a Deltona 7-Eleven on Nov. 26.

S.C.U.M.B.A.G. stands for "Suspected Criminal Unconcerned With Morals or Basic Acts of Goodness."

Chitwood said the suspect was seen driving an orange Kia Soul with a Florida tag just before entering the store.

Store surveillance confirmed the male took the donation box and left in an orange Kia Soul, police said.

Chitwood said it's only a matter of time before someone recognizes the suspect's distinctive car. 

"This is the true definition of a scumbag," Chitwood told WKMG. "That's why he's our S.C.U.M.B.A.G. of the week."
