That’s a bad look

Orange County bakeshop Paderia is on the lookout for two people who managed to team up and walk away with a pretty full tip jar recently, though they did catch the whole thing on video. Check out the brazen act below, including a full swipe of not just the cash inside but the jar itself.

Thankfully, ownership says they managed to get some pretty identifiable information from the two before they left, so hopefully they can be tracked down soon.

Our team works so hard everyday to provide above and beyond service to everyone that walks through our doors. It's such a shame when someone comes in this morning and steals their hard earned tips. Hope this never happens to any of our friends and other businesses in the industry.
