Theft involves the unlawful taking of another's property and is one of the highest invasions of property rights. In some cases, a person you know and trust can take what is rightfully yours without any warning. The most vulnerable victims of theft crimes are often employees inside convenient stores and small retail shops. Desperate or aggressive criminals target these stores, which have very few security measures, if any, and a constant flow of foot traffic and money changing hands. A distracted or unsuspecting cashier may be easily taken advantage of by thieves and robbers.

According to the report, when the counter worker turned his back to prepare a food order, the two men grabbed the jar, concealed it under their shirt and walked out with money jar.
