Police are searching for the man who stole donations that were meant for the family of Chad Dermyer, the Virginia state trooper who was killed in the Richmond bus station shooting on March 31.

Donations have been pouring in from around the country for the husband and father of two. Wayne Huggins, a member of the Virginia State Police Association, said he had “never seen such an outpouring of support for a fallen trooper.”

Now police are looking for the man who stole a collection jar off the counter of a Yorktown, Virginia 7-11 store early Tuesday morning. The clerk said the suspect was a regular there. It’s unclear how much money was in the jar at the time. Police have released a photo of the suspect and they’re asking anyone with information to call 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

Dermyer was a 37-year-old Marine Corps vet who had recently been transferred to the dept’s counterterrorism unit and when he approached the gunman that day — it was part of his introductory training for that unit, WTVR reported.

James Brown III shot Dermyer multiple times after the trooper approached him at the front entrance of the bus station. Two troopers returned fire killing Brown – who had an extensive criminal history and was headed to Chicago at the time of the shooting.
