California’s “Tip Jar Bandit” has been arrested for allegedly stealing restaurant workers’ tips.
California woman had allegedly been doing it regularly for at least a
month before she was caught in Beverly Hills this week.
According to CBS,
the “Tip Jar Bandit” was caught on Thursday after a customer spotted
her stealing from a tip jar at Brighton Coffee in Beverly Hills. Suspect
Jessica Shub had been wanted by police since approximately January 20
in connection with at least six other cases of tip jar theft in Beverly
Hills and Los Angeles.
Police estimate that Shub allegedly stole up to $80 from restaurant
workers each time she stole from a tip jar. Police report that Shub was
allegedly able to strike so many times in part because tip jar theft is
considered a “low-priority misdemeanor,” so it took a long time for
police to acquire an arrest warrant for her. While they were waiting,
she was able to strike again.
Shub is reportedly being held on commercial burglary charges, and her bail has been set at $20,000.
