An Arlington man was allegedly caught on tape last Tuesday stealing a Jimmy Fund donation jar with about $200 in it from Bull McCabe’s Pub in Somerville’s Union Square.

Kenneth Happas, 46, was then arrested on Friday and charged with larceny in a building, according to WCVB.

The bar put Happas’ photo from surveillance footage on its Facebook page after the theft. After his arrest, Bull McCabe’s posted the following:

“THEY GOT HIM!!!!!!! He's under arrest. And he was on parole for bank robbery, so, he's going back to jail. Thank you all for getting the word out!!!!”

The jar was put out after a niece of one of Bull McCabe’s employees beat neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer, after having been given only a 20 percent to live, according to WCVB’s report.

Rich or is it Dick ? Wonder what this clown is doing at 50 Beverly Road ? Sounds like you should hold a press conference lol ...

Perhaps the APD should review any unsolved robberies in town to see if that can be linked to Mr. Scumbag. I doubt that stealing money from kids' cancer research is his only crime besides bank robbery...
