Tip jar thief at Le Reve caught on film
Posted on December 27th, 2011 by Laura Fonda
The tip jar at Le Reve Bakery, which was full of money a barista was counting on for Christmas money, was stolen Friday.
Just before closing time at the Bakery at 1805 Queen Anne Ave. N., a man in a knitted snow hat and dark-blue jacket with a Pabst Blue Ribbon logo on the back, snatched the tip jar. Unbeknownst to the man, the act was caught on video. Le Reve owner Andrea Nakata sent the video to Seattle Police.
Nakata reported that Emerald City Smoothie just up the street also had its tip jar stolen. Anyone with any information on the thefts should contact Ricardo Martinez of the Seattle police department. The non-emergency line is (206) 625-5011.
