    A long-time restaurant near The Ohio State University campus is warning other businesses about an alleged crook who walked off with worker tips.

    "Very weird, very off-putting," said Georgi Seeley, a server at Cazuela's Grill on North High Street, "Takes the money and runs."

    Seeley says restaurant surveillance cameras captured a stranger steal cash that was sitting near the register, meant for workers.

    "We are out here, working hard," said Seeley, "This is our money."

    The suspect can be seen on surveillance March 1st, casually walk up the steps of the restaurant not even paying attention to the outside security cameras recording his every move.

    "He'll keep doing it, " said Seeley, "it's too easy for him."

    The restaurant hoping somebody recognizes the guy who ripped workers off during the busy lunch hour and stops him before more employees lose their tips to a thief.

    "We don't want it to happen to any other small businesses," said Seeley, "restaurants don't deserve that."
