Chef, restaurant worker facing trial for stealing money collected as tips
Dh10,000 was stolen from the tip box that contained Dh75,000
A chef, 35, and a worker, 42, of a restaurant were arrested in Dubai after they stole the money that was collected as tips from the eatery’s customers that were slated to be divided among all the employees.
Documents available with the public prosecution showed that the incident occurred on January 11.
The theft came to light when the restaurant’s manager opened the tip box and found a portion of the cash was missing even though patrons were generously contributing to it daily.
The manager found that Dh10,000 was missing from a total of Dh75,000. He scanned the restaurant’s closed-circuit TV (CCTV) footage and suspected both the chef and the worker, who are of Asian origin, since they were present when the crime occurred.
The worker, who is the first accused in the case, took the tip box close to a water closet and covered it with a piece of cloth. The chef, who is the second accused, was waiting for the worker near the water closet.
They managed to take out the money and put the tip box back to its original place.
The manager reported the theft to Dubai Police. The duo admitted to their guilt during an investigation by the public prosecution.
They are facing trial in the criminal court and further legal proceedings are in progress.
