We’ll be posting our new weekly Police Blotter feature on Mondays — minus the flashing lights — but the following late addition to the reports from over the weekend was just too good not to share:
According to a police report, a man dressed as a woman entered the Subway at 3928 Cedar Springs at about 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, and proceeded to order a sandwich. When an employee began making the sandwich, the suspect removed a tip jar from the counter and placed it in his purse. After the employee told the suspect to put the tip jar back, the suspect took the jar out of the purse, emptied its contents into the purse, and placed the jar back on the counter — before fleeing.
The employee told police he’s seen the suspect multiple times and that the suspect has stolen bags of chips from the business in the past. The tip jar’s contents were estimated at $30.
