Job applicant steals from tip jar
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) - December 18, 2013 (WPVI) -- Police say a woman applying for a job at a Delaware restaurant stole money from a tip jar.
Rehoboth Beach police say the woman filled out an application at Five Guys 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 Brittingham.
A local radio station reports that Brittingham later pleaded guilty to a theft charge and received one year of probation.
Brittingham must also pay a $500 fine and court costs.
