Ripe for a law suit

Police: Boy applies for job, steals from tip jar

The Associated Press

VALPARAISO, Ind. - Police said two teens were arrested when one of them stole money from the tip jar of a northwestern Indiana ice cream shop just after they put their names on job applications.

A clerk at Pat's Ice Cream Parlor in downtown Valparaiso told police the boys, ages 15 and 16, filled out the applications Friday afternoon. She said she went to file the applications when heard change clattering, then saw one of the boys grab the dollar bills from the tip jar and run out.

The employee told police she chased after the boy and he turned over $2.

Police reported one of the teens said he didn't steal, but gave the clerk his own money to avoid getting in trouble. Both boys were arrested on preliminary theft charges.

A good indication of a reason not to consider hiring either of these two. But then they could file a discrimination law suit.
