Many workers in the service industry rely on tips to help support their wage. Employees work hard for them.

It’s one thing to rob a store’s cash register, but to steal a tip jar is to take money directly out of the pockets of employees.

A coffee shop in New York City was recently the victim of a tip jar thief but luckily for the employees, a good samaritan decided to step in.

Surveillance video from outside the business shows the suspect trying to escape with the jar in hand, but the good samaritan holds on to him and refuses to let go.
