Arrest Made in North Park Tip Jar Thefts

San Diego police have made one arrest in a series of tip jar thefts at North Park businesses.

Phillip Felipe Sains, 53, was recently taken into custody in connection with the thefts.

However, investigators say he is not responsible for all the incidents, so the investigation continues.

In October, owners of Crazee Burger on 30th Street posted surveillance video to social media, showing a man walk into the restaurant and put a tip jar into a bag on Sept. 14.

A week before, Young Hickory published a video of a man in a Harvard shirt doing the same thing. Underbelly reported a similar incident.

It's unclear which cases are tied to Sain's charges.
