WILLISTON, Fla. -- A would-be robber picked the wrong time to steal a jar of money from the counter of a north Florida convenience store.

Williston Police Chief Dennis Strow says 27-year-old Michael Wayne Aurilio took the jar containing $35.78 from the Kangaroo store Wednesday. But he didn't realize an off-duty Marion County Sheriff's deputy was standing behind him.

The money was intended for a charity that sponsors recreational events for terminally ill children.

Aurilio was charged with robbery and felony battery on a law enforcement officer.
