Woman Dies Trying to Rob Donation Bin


Judith Permar, a 56 year-old Pennsylvania woman, was found dead Sunday morning after attempting to snatch clothes from a donation bin.

Permar was found by police with her arm still inside of the drop-off bin, unable to free herself.

Carmel Police Chief Brian Hollenbush mentioned that Permar had brought a step stool with her to help leverage her way into the donation box. The stool broke underneath her, breaking her left arm and wrist. Failing to escape, Permar died as a result of hypothermia and trauma.


“She was fishing bags out and the ladder she was standing on gave way and she couldn’t get her hand loose,” Hollenbush said. The chief of police also said that a woman with a black Hummer, likely Permar, had been spotted in November stealing from the same bin.

The incident occured around 2 AM, but Permar wasn’t found until close to 8:30 AM on Sunday.  Her black Hummer was parked nearby with the engine still running.

According to her obituary, Permar was described as an out-and-about woman who loved cats, cooking, baking and gardening.
