'New low' in crime: Tip jar theft UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, Jul 13, 2011 at 2:34 PM

Little Rock Police Lt. Terry Hastings announces what he calls a "new low" in crime — theft of a tip jar from Starbucks about noon today.

The thief snatched it at the drive-through of the Starbucks at 917 Broadway and drove off.

I don't know. What about you? When I lived in New Orleans, somebody broke in my apartment and stole a Pat O'Brien's Hurricane glass that had eight pennies in it. A thief once took a rusty tricycle from my backyard in Little Rock. And there's the famous theft of my discus from a parked car. What you got to offer on the "new low" front?

UPDATE: The perp's car? A Land Rover.
