Police in Waterford said they caught the man believed to have snatched a donation collection jar from a gas station in town.
Joseph Tonelli, 34, was actually arrested on Wednesday on warrants for failing to appear in court.
Saturday, surveillance cameras captured Tonelli stealing a collection jar for the Friday's Rescue Foundation, which helps dogs.
Tonelli will be brought to court on Wednesday morning for the warrants as well as a new charge of sixth-degree larceny for the donation jar theft, police said.
In a Facebook post, Waterford police thanked the community for what it called "numerous reports" regarding the suspect.
