Another angle shows the thief wheeling the box out on top of a trash can. The owners say this is a big hit to their employees. “It’s sad for us as a company but even worse for our staff members who worked really hard for their tips because everything was in that safe and they were supposed to get their tips that Monday,” said Trang Nguyen.
Nguyen says he hopes to reimburse their employees. Since the break-in, the owner of Green Jeans says they’ve added more security cameras inside the building.
