We’re only a few days into the new year, but we already have a nominee for scumbag of the year.

Some woman in Old Bridge stole a collection jar filled with about $500 earmarked for the VFW. The VFW Post is 9468 in Old Bridge. A volunteer was gathering the collections outside a Wawa on Englishtown Road on Dec. 31. The volunteer placed the jar on the back seat of a red pickup truck. Around 12:30 pm a woman stole the jar.

According to the Old Bridge Police Department’s Facebook page, she is believed to be driving a silver vehicle, maybe a Nissan Rogue or Murano. Here is the link to the Old Bridge PD’s Facebook page which has a security cam picture of the woman.

UPDATE: Police said Friday that they arrested Monroe resident Sheriann Depinho, 51, and charged her with burglary by entering structure and theft of moveable property.
