Thief Steals Cancer Patient’s Donation Bucket from Local Pub

HERNANDO – Patrons and staff at a local pub are angry and in disbelief, after a thief stole a donation bucket from the bar containing funds intended for a man who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer.

Long-time patron of Amnesia Pub, John “Mac” McCaffery was recently diagnosed with Glioblastoma Cancer and is undergoing treatment to slow the progression.

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, August 5th an unidentified man (pictured below) grabbed the donation bucket from the bar and fled through the front entrance.

Two other people were seen talking with the suspect and may have information regarding the theft (Also pictured below).

Witnesses at the bar say they recognize the person responsible for stealing the donation bucket, but because the man has not been named as a suspect by officials, we are not releasing his identity.


Amnesia Pub is located at 4245 Mariner Blvd in Spring Hill.

If you can positively identify the suspect pictured below, please contact the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office at 352-754-6830 or if you would like to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-990-8477

  • Jen if you don’t want to be on here again, which you are, get the **** away from your abusive baby daddy. I have not one ounce of sympathy for you. Either your addicted to the drugs that Paul and his low life friends are, or you are blinded by his bull***t and can’t be that smart. YOU have put yourself into the situation of being associated with a bunch of useless, drug addicted, violent people, and prostitutes.

  • J H. This article has nothing to do with either of us. The person who stole the money is Paul Dimartino! He should be arrested and dealt with by the courts. That is not “bashing” that is fact. The video shows that. The things I stated about the person in this article is also fact. I was not “stalking” as you put it. The article appeared and I stated I knew who it was. Period. I’m sure we have both heard things about the other that is not true. I cannot apologize for the statements by other people, again you must look to them. It is true, I am also a moron for reasons I won’t discuss here for it is not the place. But I do know again for a fact, that Paul dimartino is a thief and a Meth user. For this I also have proof. What you choose to believe is on you. Good luck to you and yours. I’ve said my peace. I will not respond to you after this point. Again, this article is about 1 thing.. A thief stole money from a cancer patient.

  • Tammy king and keep them locked up you both came on here and called me a drug addict thief and a moron neither of you know me but yet bashed me and insulted me.tammy king I have heard plenty of nasty things about you but I’m not gonna be like you and put your dirty laundry out there but an apology would be nice for the trash you said.I could call you a moron for following a man after all this time,wanting to be with him then bashing him on public forum.I would appreciate if you stop talking trash and garbage about me or my family. I had to explain to my kid why some old lady is attacking me and saying I’m on a video because I don’t care about my children. Its a sad world were people are critized when they themselves have plenty of skeletons in their own closet.

  • Jen. You are right. I am most assuredly “over it”. I am not how ever “ihatespringhill”, “sleeping pitbull”, or “keepthemlockedup”. For them you must look elsewhere. But they seem to know the person in question.

  • @Jen I am not ” Tammy King ” I have my own connections to know what is and is not the truth , many resources . Maybe that person wasn’t you at the bar , but your other half was . I have my own Personal Informants, in regards to this ” group “, I shall not slander ones name without having a clue on what’s going on, they asked who they thought it might be , I expressed whom I thought it might be , I might be wrong about you , but I know a Dimartino when I see one .

  • Linda! I don’t know your daughter, but I believe you on this one. I’d like to think a mother would recognize her own children even though the picture is distorted. People on this forum love to bash people they do not know, because they have nothing better to do in their pathetic lives then to criticize people they do not know.t

  • This is to “over it”and keep them locked up….aka Tammy king. I’m good friends with the owner of amnesia and no doubt that’s not me.I’m not a druggie or live in a a garage. Its funny to me how you got all this garbage to say when you never met me.Tammy king don’t you think you should move on from stalking your ex boyfriend from like 20 yrs ago???I didn’t even want to come on and give you the attention you so want to have.but what you are saying about me is lies and slander

  • It is sad, but for some reason our children don’t think we know what we’re talking about..what they don’t realize we’ve be there done that and the reason we’re still here and have kids is because we figured it out that a pile of crap is just crap no matter how much candy coated it is…i just ran crap from my home 10 mins ago, i feel bad about it but don’t know what to tell them…im done paying the pruce for fools myself

  • Keep making excuses for her Linda denial is hard to over come…if she is running around with her baby daddy then…we’ll you know how it goes…it’s a small town and unfortunately we have to play the hand that is dealt us and you and yours have a big problems….and we know whom it is…hope that this is her wake up call and cuts ties but I’am sure she won’t till she is in the Hospital with life threatening injuries….

I guess he has to support your grand kids some how some stealing is ok.. It’s sad that he steals from a cancer patient, let’s his momma spend all her money bailing him out while his dad sits at home with Alzheimer’s..

  • And Dimartino is on probation. Maybe if charged and convicted for this he’ll get revoked and locked back up. Or not if Obama has anything to say about it.

  • Oh and the girl is his ( Paul’s) drug infested, baby’s mother Jennifer Hess, they just had a new baby in Feburary , I believe . These people will steal and think they are bullet proof . They don’t get punished, just put in jail and get bonded out , go to court and get charges dropped , it’s ridiculous . They live in the garage of his mom and dads house . All they need money for is their next fix , they obviously don’t care about their children .
