Desperate Tip Cup Thief!
Hoboken Tip Cup Thief busted!
The owner of Rita’s Ice wanted to share this good news – the girl was actually busted last week! Read on for the juice:
“Just saw your updated post on the tip cup stealer. I wanted to let you know that we caught her on Friday.
Believe it or not, she came back to the store and we immediately recognized her. She said she was “waiting for a friend” and sat for a minute on our bench. I went to the back and called the cops. About 3-4 minutes later the cops arrive and the girl had left and walked south towards Walgreens. She was moving slowly; so I just stood outside watching her so I could point her out to the cops once they came. We went into the Walgreens where I pointed her out in one of the aisles and the cops brought her in.
To the person who commented on the amount of money that was stolen and how it was pointless to pursue her, I think the point should be made that this girl hit up us, Cluck U, Cold Stone, Koa Koa, and now Dames apparently. The cops also told me that she was wanted for similar offenses in Roxbury, NJ, where she’s apparently from.
It’s unfortunate that someone would have the mentality that just b/c she stole a small amount of money it’s not important enough to go after her, but hey, everyone’s entitled to his/her opinion. I, for one, and glad I don’t have to deal with her again, because after hearing of her hitting up a number of other businesses, I knew it would be a persistent problem – one I would rather deal without.
Anyway, that’s that. I figured I’d email you so the Dames coffee employee would feel better that she’s been caught.”
Hoboken Tip Cup Thief Strikes Again (at Dames Coffee)
Hoboken411 reader Amanda adds to the “Hoboken Tip Cup Thief” File…
“I was working at Dames Coffee in Hoboken when the same exact girl from the Rita’s story came in and stole my tip jar. It was really upsetting as I work really hard and rely on my tips every day. I want her to be caught so she doesn’t do this to anybody else ever again! I have attached the video of her stealing the tip jar.”
Tip Cup at Rita’s Ice in Hoboken stolen – for 80 cents
Have you seen this girl?
The owners of Rita’s Ice downtown sent this security video in, because the girl seen below went in to ask for a job application, and when the owner went in the back to retrieve it, she took possession of the tip cup on the counter – which had less than a dollar worth of change in it. The owners wanted other businesses in town to be aware of this in case this is some kind of racket she’s pulling elsewhere.
A police report will be filed today.
