Deputies in Volusia County have made two arrests following an investigation into the theft of a Red Cross donation jar from an Ormond Beach 7-Eleven store.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office says that the suspects, identified as 19-year-old Kyle Belcher, and 18-year-olds Michael Norman and Jacob Mangrum, stole the donation jar for "Feed America's Children" program on June 13 at the 7-Eleven store on Ocean Shore Boulevard.

Belcher and Mangrum have been arrested in Hillsborough County, but Norman is still being sought. All three face charges of petit theft.  Authorities said a woman was also present during the incident, but her identity has not been released.

In less than ten minutes, deputies said the group distracted the store clerk while stealing a soda, a taquito, and the donation jar. The four of them left the store and drove south on State Road A1A. The donation jar contained an estimated $50.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office posted about the suspect on their Facebook page, calling him their 'Scumbag of the Week.'
