Man accused of stealing donation jar meant for homeless veterans

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man accused of stealing a donation jar for disabled veterans is due in court later this week.

Police say the victim was collecting donations in front of a Walmart store in Lexington when David Kirk approached the table. Kirk allegedly tried to take the money-filled jar, but when he realized it was bolted to the table, he picked up the entire table and put it in his truck.

Kirk turned himself last week in after police issued an arrest warrant.

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