Uncharitable Theft for 7-11

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Md. - Syrinthia Foster and Chad Dreakford have been charged with stealing a charity jar from the 7-11 on Coast Highway in Easton, MD.  Workers at pizza shop Rusticana, across the highway from the convenience store, say they are disappointed.

Rusticana's owner Anthony Genova says, "It doesn't matter who says they needed it more, it was dedicated for those people and it's not right that they did that." 

Employee Robert Birk agrees, saying, "I guess some people do need it more, but they should go get it themselves."

Immediately next door to the 7-11, local pizza and pasta shop Giovanni's, says they had a charity jar stolen from them as well, just over one month ago.  Employee Robbie Cameron tells WMDT that a couple brought a charity jar into the store asking for help raising money for their son who has a medical condition. But just two days after setting out the jar, it was stolen.
According to surveillance footage at the store, it was stolen by someone they see outside the store every day.

Regardless of these two thefts, Giovanni's will continue to help out those in need. Cameron says it's the owner's religious beliefs that make him want to give back, and he instills these morals into the employees.

The alleged thieves of the 7-11 robbery were caught just minutes after their crime, and have been charged with theft under $100. Foster is being held on a $7,500 bond.
