Police Say Collection Jar for Cancer Patient Stolen

By The Associated Press

GLEN CARBON, Ill. (AP) - Investigators in southwestern Illinois are trying to find the person who stole a restaurant's countertop jar that was accepting donations for a cancer patient.  Police in Glen Carbon say the theft happened Monday at an International House of Pancakes restaurant in Glen Carbon, just northeast of St. Louis.  It isn't clear how much money was in the jar. Workers at the restaurant were trying to raise money to help a colleague with breast cancer who isn't able to work because of treatments.  

IHOP officials report that on Wednesday, 20-percent of all sales at the Glen Carbon IHOP will be donated to the server fighting cancer.  The IHOP will be doing this from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
