Surveillance footage from Nervous Dog Coffee Bar in Ohio showed a man reaching into the tip jar and pocketing as much cash as he could. Rather than file a police report and press charges, manager Scott Moses decided to host a food drive for the thief. Arguing that a person desperate enough to steal from a tip jar must be in great need, the shop’s two locations are collecting food donations to be offered to the man, no questions asked. The staff even say that they’d be happy to welcome the man back again for a cup of coffee.
If the man in the video does not come forward by Christmas, Nervous Dog Coffee Bar will donate the food to the local food bank instead.Post by Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Brian J. Smith.
