      Police: Job applicant stole from tip jar

      REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) Police say a woman applying for a job at a Delaware restaurant stole money from a tip jar.

      Rehoboth Beach police say the woman filled out an application at Five Guys last Friday, then took about $15 from two separate jars.

      Police say a review of the application and surveillance footage led to the arrest of 44-year-old Melissa Brittingham.

      WXDE-FM reports that Brittingham later pleaded guilty to a theft charge and received one year of probation.

      Brittingham must also pay a $500 fine and court costs.
