A man seeking a job at a local feed store blew his chances at employment when he stole a donation box on his way out the door.

The man went to OK Feed & Supply in the 3700 block of East Fort Lowell Road Aug. 30 and filled out a job application.

When one of the employees left the counter area briefly, the job applicant “looked around, grabbed the donation box and put it into his black shoulder bag,” according to a Pima County Sheriff’s Department report.

When deputies arrived, the store clerk played a security video showing the potential employee stealing the donation box.

The clerk also provided police with the man’s completed job application, which included the suspect's name and address.
