Two men that took a Riley Hospital for Children donation bucket from a Lebanon gas station turned themselves and the money in Thursday evening.

Police say that one man went to the Boone County Sheriff's Department and the other man went to the Lebanon Police Department where they gave statements. The information and statements will be turned over to the Boone County prosecutor's office to determine charges against the two men.

Justin Mantooth was arrested for theft. The other man in the video, who police have not identified, was released pending review by the prosecutor's office.

Police say Mantooth and another man walked into the Speedway gas station at 1335 S. Lebanon St. around 3:15 a.m. Thursday and began talking and laughing with the clerk. When the clerk became distracted, one of the men grabbed the red donation bucket and concealed it.

Police say the incident was captured on store security cameras.
