ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford man is now in jail after police say he stole a $100 from a donation bucket at a local church.
Investigators tell us Michael Hearon, 49, was taken into custody after he was pulled over in a car on Underwood. Officers say prior to that he walked into the Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church on 20th Street and told the pastor he needed money for medication. When the pastor refused the man left, however, detectives say Hearon ended up coming back and taking the money.
