EATONTOWN - A thief was caught on camera Friday night stealing from a box of cash donations meant for a local animal shelter, and now the suspect has been apprehended by police.

The funds were stolen from Cluck-U Chicken, a restaurant in Eatontown, which was raising money for Pitties and Pals, a shelter based in Jackson.

The thief reportedly placed a large order and then slipped out the door with several hundred dollars while staffers were cooking.

The suspect was taken into custody by police on Sunday.
