Rehoboth Beach police: Job applicant stole from tip jar
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - December 18, 2013 (WPVI) -- Police say a woman applying for a job at a Rehoboth Beach restaurant stole money from a tip jar.
Rehoboth Beach police say the woman filled out an application at the Five Guys on Rehoboth Avenue last Friday, then took about $15 from two separate jars.
Police say a review of the application and surveillance footage led to the arrest of 44-year-old Melissa L. Brittingham of Rehoboth Beach.
Brittingham was arrested at her home without incident. She later pleaded guilty to a theft charge in Justice of the Peace Court and received one year of probation.
Brittingham must also pay a $500 fine and court costs.
