SAINT JAMES - Two more Long Island businesses say they have had donation jars stolen from them.

The revelation comes just days after police arrested a Babylon man for allegedly stealing a donation jar from a Lindenhurst store.

On March 2 at a 7-Eleven in Shirley, a man walked off with a donation jar that managers estimate could have had a few hundred dollars inside. The jar was earmarked for Donate Life, an organ donation program.

On March 9 at the North Country gas station in Saint James, another thief walked off with a donation jar. Owner Bill Barton says the money was supposed to help fund a Stony Brook University summer camp for kids who have parents with cancer.

Both crimes were caught on surveillance video.

The donation jars at both the 7-Eleven and the North Country gas station are going to be replaced and chained to make sure they are not stolen again.

Anyone who recognizes the suspects is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
