Beverly Hills 'Tip Jar Bandit' Got Her Start Stealing From Jamba Juice Job
It turns out that the purported Tip Jar Bandit's reign of terror on Westside businesses may not have even been her first heist: she was also charged with stealing from a Jamba Juice where she worked in 2014. Jessica Shub, a 20-year-old Beverly Hills woman, pleaded no contest to one count of grand theft of personal property on Wednesday, according to a release from the L.A. District Attorney's office. In this particular instance, prosecutors said that she stole money from the cash register of a Jamba Juice where she worked for two months in 2014—long before she was accused of being the infamous Tip Jar Bandit.
By entering a no contest plea in the felony Jamba Juice case, her misdemeanor Tip Jar allegations have been dismissed. She was sentenced yesterday to one year's confinement in a live-in drug rehab facility, plus three years of probation. She must also pay $1,500 in restitution.
Shub was arrested earlier this month after video surveillance caught a young woman snatching tips from the jars of numerous Westside businesses, including Seoul Sausage and Komodo. A witness who said she saw Shub steal tips from Brighton Coffee Shop in Beverly Hills followed Shub and alerted the police.
