Tip jar theft leads Henrico Police to reunite West End girl with stolen bike

A Subway employee tackled a suspect who stole a tip jar, leading police to identify and return the getaway bike to its rightful owner.

From WTVR:

Who would’ve ever thought that a stolen tip jar from a Subway on Broad Street could make a little girl so happy?

You could say it started with a Subway sandwich maker and two Henrico Police officers who served up a story Wednesday night with all the right fixings.

“Well, my nanny passed away Saturday,” said rising fifth grader Savannah Turner, who has had a rough year.  Her bike was stolen last year, and now her beloved grandmother is gone.

What a cool story with weird coincidences and a happy ending.
