Suspect in donation jar theft turns self in

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Lexington Police Department says a man accused of taking a donation jar meant for veterans has turned himself in.

Investigators say on March 24, David A. Kirk, 38, got out of a pickup truck and approached a donation table in front of the Walmart on West New Circle Road. Police say Kirk tried to steal the donation jar off of the table, but it was bolted down, so he grabbed the entire table, put it in the bed of the pickup and drove off.

Officers issued an arrest warrant for Kirk Wednesday.

Police say he turned himself in Thursday morning.
