BONITA SPRINGS, Fla., July 23 (UPI) -- A Florida man is facing criminal charges after he was arrested for allegedly stealing 42 cents from a water fountain in a shopping center, police said.

Laslo Mujzer, 43, of Bonita Springs, Fla., was taken into police custody and charged with petty theft after a shopper at the Coastland Center mall reported him Monday for allegedly taking change from an outdoor fountain, police said.

Mujzer was held until police arrived at took him to the Collier County jail, where he was held on a $500 bond, police records indicate.

Naples police Capt. John Adams told the Naples (Fla.) News the money in the fountain was intended for the Habitat for Humanity of Collier County.
