MESA, AZ (CBS5) -

A man stole a donation can at a Valley Walgreens earmarked for Cardon Children's Medical Center in Mesa, police said.

The Dec. 12 theft occurred just after 4:30 p.m. at a Walgreens store at 1142 W. Guadalupe Rd.

Officers said the man entered the store, carried some items to the front register and apparently distracted the cashier for a few moments.

He then grabbed the donation can and ran out the store without paying for any of the merchandise.  

The man jumped into a vehicle driven by a woman who had accompanied him into the store.

It wasn't clear how much money was in the donation can.

The man is described as between 25 to 28 years old. He was between 6'2" to 6'3" tall with a medium build. He had tattoos on both forearms. He was last seen wearing a black hat possibly emblazoned with an ASU logo, a white shirt possibly bearing a Bob Marley image, dark jeans and white athletic shoes with black laces.

The driver of the vehicle is described as being in her early 20s. She is between 5'4" to 5'6" tall with a slim build. She has blond hair and was wearing glasses, a white tank top with pink graphic design on front and torn blue jeans.

The getaway vehicle is described as a silver, four-door compact car, possibly a Honda Fit with no license plate.

People with any information about the pair or the crime are asked to call the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-2211.
