SOMERVILLE, Ala. - The Morgan County Sheriff's Office is looking for two shoplifters. Money intended to help veterans was stolen from a collection jar at a gas station.

The Sheriff's Office said the two individuals went into the Exxon at the intersection Highways 36 and 67 in Somerville on Jan. 2.

While in the station, the duo stole a collection jar meant for veterans. The jar was full of an unknown amount of cash.

"It's unfortunate when something like this happens, especially when it's money that's given freely meant to go to somebody that served our country and potentially needs it."

The collection jar was not secured to the counter, which the sheriff's office says might have prevented this from happening.

Anyone with information can message the Sheriff's Office on Facebook, use the Sheriff's Office tiplink or contact Dispatch at (256) 350-4613.
