PURCELL, Okla. – Police in Purcell hope a ‘Grinch’ in McClain County will have a change of heart after stealing from children in need.
Just before 10 p.m. on Monday night, police say a man walked into the Murphy USA store in the Walmart parking lot in Purcell and stole the ‘Cops and Kids’ collection jar off the counter.
The jar was placed there by the Purcell Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police to collect money to buy Christmas presents for low-income children.
At this point, it is unknown how much money was inside the jar when it was taken.
If you have any information on the crime, call D.S. Scott Stephens at (405) 527-4615.
