Wauwatosa police say tip jar bandit gets away, again

Feb. 20, 2013

Baristas at Starbucks, 3900 N. 124th St., had a nasty surprise for the third time at 12:44 p.m. Feb. 13. A man had stolen their tip jar.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

An anonymous customer told the manager that a man had just taken the tip jar and was running out the door.

While there was only $20 in the tip jar, the flustered manager wasn't about to let the man get away without a chase. He bolted down the road, pursuing him for a quarter-mile.

The chase ended at the 12100 block of West Capitol Drive, where the thief jumped into a waiting getaway car and flew down the road.

The vehicle is described as a gold-colored, mid-'90s station wagon with a rounded back end.
