WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - Two suburban Chicago men have been charged with stealing a Salvation Army donation bucket and leading police on a high-speed chase.

The DuPage County state’s attorney’s office announced the charges Friday.

In a news release, prosecutors say 48-year-old Kavin Gipson of Hillside took the donation bucket outside a food store in Lombard while the Salvation Army bell ringer was inside the store.

The other suspect is 51-year-old Roosevelt Huddleston of Bellwood. Prosecutors say he acted as a lookout. They say both men fled in a car and led police on a high-speed chase through a residential area.

A judge set bond Friday at $20,000 for Gipson and $30,000 for Huddleston. Online court records posted by the DuPage County Circuit Court do not show whether either man already has an attorney.
