A woman applying for a job in Rehoboth Beach is accused of stealing money from a restaurant tip jar.

Rehoboth Police say the woman had just filled out an application at Five Guys on Rehoboth Avenue last Friday when she took about $15 in tip money from two separate jars.

A review of the application, as well as surveillance footage, led to the arrest of 44-year-old Melissa Brittingham of Rehoboth Beach.

She later pled guilty to a theft charge in Justice of the Peace Court Two and received one year of probation.

Brittingham is also required to pay a $500 fine and court costs.
