The woman accused of stealing two donation jars for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals from the counter of the Speedway in Ontario has turned herself in.

Brittany Freeman, 24, kept her word and went to the police department Monday night.

Detective Jon Siglar says she apologized and said she was embarassed. She was charged with theft and released.

Ontario Police posted store surveillance pictures on their Facebook page, and had 50 people identify Freeman. Siglar says this goes to show, trying to steal from a store with cameras capturing every possible angle will only get you arrested.

Brittany Freeman appears in Ontario Mayor's Court Jan. 23. If convicted of first degree misdemeanor theft, she faces up to six months in jail and a $,1000 fine.

She's also a suspect in similar thefts at the Speedways on Park Avenue West and Trimble Road in Mansfield, on U.S. 42, and in Lexington, but has not been charged in those cases.
