      Jail time for charity thief

      A man has been sentenced to jail time for stealing a charity collection jar for sick and injured children at a Detroit-area gas station.

      Chad Lendon Stewart pleaded guilty to a felony charge of larceny in a building. The 39 year old from Manitou Beach was sentenced Monday in Oakland County Circuit Court to 90 days behind bars.

      WHMI-FM in Howell reports (http://bit.ly/1cva7Fr ) Stewart was given credit for 46 days served. He also must serve 18 months of probation, during which he can't re-enter the Milford gas station he robbed, drink alcohol or go into bars.

      A store clerk at the gas station last month reported the theft of a collection jar for the Children's Miracle Network, which raises money for children's hospitals and medical research.
