Crimestoppers: Suspects caught stealing from charity

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

There are small thefts, there are large thefts and then there are thefts that just kind of make you mad.  

For instance, stealing from a charity.

In the last week, there have been several reports of people stealing from Abilities Unlimited.

A few days ago, early in the morning, two men were captured on camera stealing from the charity's donation center near downtown Jonesboro.

Management with Abilities Unlimited said the video shows them shopping for about five minutes before they start loading up.

The charity reports the men stole several bags of donated items and eventually, as you can see at the end of the video, a mattress.

The total value of what they stole is estimated at $500.

If you know who stole these donated items, Crimestoppers will give you money for that tip.

Call it in right now, anonymously, at 935-STOP. 

This week on warrant watch, our 2 warrant watchees team up for over 80 warrants.  

Frankie Watkins has 33. He has them from several different agencies. 32 are for contempt and 1 is for failure to appear.

Shane Wooldridge has 50 warrants. That's in addition to being listed as a parole absconder.  

JPD, Craighead County and Brookland Police Department all want him.  44 warrants are for contempt of court, 3 are for failure to appear warrants and 3 warrants are for public service.

If you can lead police to Shane Wooldrige or Frankie Watkins, it's worth money.

Call in that tip to Crimestoppers at 935-STOP or text it.

Take your iPhone or Android phone and type in 274637 or type in the word "CRIMES" if your phone can do that.

Then, in the message, type in 935stop as one word, followed by your tip.

This is yours to keep for any future reward.
