Pinal County Sheriff Deputies are looking for a man who stole a plastic donation bin filled with money intended to help a Valley girl fighting cancer.
Investigators confirmed a man stole the bin on Saturday afternoon from a Walgreen’s store in San Tan Valley.
It’s not known how much cash was in the jar, but it was donated to 7-year-old Dakota Clark who has a rare form of cancer called Burkitt’s Lymphoma.
“If he's willing to do this, steal money from a collection bin for my 7-year-old daughter with cancer, what else is he going to do? It's beneath me,” said Dakota’s father, Jason.
Investigators are now reviewing the video hoping to find the man.
Even with insurance, Dakota’s parents admit they’re struggling to pay for their daughter’s treatments and medicine.
“This month alone, I would say for her medication, it probably cost us about $4,000,” said Dakota’s mother, Kimberly.
"Just like any other parent, when something like this happens all you're thinking about is your child we don't want to worry about where money is coming from," said Jason. "We just want to provide the best care for our daughter."
The family has a website set up in their daughter's name .
A donation account has also been setup at Chase Banks. Donations can be made to account #3018891308.
