Nikki Baim, Reporter

Police are investigating two suspects who stole a tip jar from Bagel Art Cafe on Sunday morning.

Two men entered the cafe at 615 Dempster St. around 11 a.m. and lingered near the register, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. One man grabbed the tip jar from the counter and concealed it under his coat.

Both men fled on foot, Glew said. They left the emptied jar outside the cafe, but kept the $40 in tips.

Police have not identified any suspects, but are investigating video footage of the burglary caught on the cafe’s camera.

Police valued the stolen property at $100, and no suspects have been identified, Glew said.
