Man caught on camera stealing teen's tips

Posted: Updated:

New Cumberland police are hoping someone recognizes a man who was captured on surveillance footage stealing money from a tip jar at a local coffee shop.

Victoria Weiser, owner of Bridge Street Coffee House, contacted abc27 this week asking that we share her video with our viewers.

"I want him to go down," Weiser said. "Hard."

The man, who is described as 5'11", 190 lbs., with facial hair and a hat with sunglasses on the brim, walked into the store at around 4 p.m. Monday and asked the barista for a menu.

He can be seen perusing the list of items for some time before telling the barista, 18-year-old Red Land High School student Marissa Dodd, that he was going back to his car to call his wife and collect her order.

Dodd said she told him to take his time, and she then retreated to a back room. At that time, the video shows the man turning around at the front door, returning to the counter, and swiping approximately $10 from the tip jar.

"It's infuriating," Weiser said. "For $10!"

The man was last seen heading toward the Lemoyne area, Weiser said.

New Cumberland Borough Police confirmed they are investigating. Anyone who recognizes the man is asked to call them at 774-0400.
