An off-duty Florida sheriff's deputy suffered minor injuries, after tackling a suspect who tried to steal cash from a donation jar for terminally ill children.

Michael Wayne Aurilio, 27, was at the Kangaroo convenience store at 9:39 a.m. Wednesday, when he grabbed a jar with $35.78 near the cash register. Marion County Sheriff's Sgt. William Dietrich was behind Aurilio and attempted to take him into custody, when the men crashed through a plate-glass door.

The deputy suffered minor injuries.
