A woman applying for a job at a pizza shop ended up stealing money from a tip jar.

The Associated Press reports that Melissa Brittingham of Rehoboth Beach, Del. was in the middle of filing out a job application at a Five Guys pizza restaurant when she helped herself to the tips in two separate tip jars on the counter. The 44-yer-old made off with about $15 total.

Police were able to catch Brittingham after reviewing the surveillance footage from the restaurant. She plead guilty to theft and received probation plus a $500 fine.
