Four youths were arrested Thursday morning for attempting to steal from a charity box in Elad.

The police were called to a local shopping center and caught several teenage boys in the act of dislodging a charity box from a wall to steal the money inside.

The boys were accompanied by a 15-year old girl, who is suspected of showing them how to conduct the theft. Money from the charity fund was found on her person.
