Pinal County authorities say a second suspect now is in custody for allegedly stealing donation jars meant for a 7-year-old girl battling cancer.

County sheriff's officials say 21-year-old Peter Cardinale, of Chandler, was arrested Thursday at his grandmother's home in Apache Junction.

The other suspect — 21-year-old Anthony Stuber, of San Tan Valley — was taken into custody Tuesday.

Authorities say the two men were separately seen in surveillance video taken during the thefts on July 22 and Aug. 9 at Queen Creek-area Walgreens stores.

The two aren't believed to be working together.

Deputies suspect the two men allegedly stole about $300 from both jars.

The donation jars were placed at the stores by the ailing girl's parents, who planned to use the money to cover some family expenses.
