Police use Facebook to help ID alleged delivery driver tip thief – KATC Lafayette News

Slidell Police are trying to identify a DoorDash delivery driver who they say stole from the tip jar at an area restaurant.

According to a post on the department’s Facebook page, the employee allegedly stole the money from McAlister’s Deli on February 25. The entire incident was captured on the store’s surveillance video, and Slidell Police have taken to Facebook this week in an attempt to identify the driver.

In their first post on Monday, police said the driver had until Tuesday to return the money before they posted the surveillance footage to Facebook.

The video, posted Tuesday evening, shows the driver walking up to the counter, noticing the tip jar, looking around, then pulling the jar over. In their post, police added, “For those asking why we just don’t get the information from DoorDash…well, it’s not like the TV shows. Nothing is quick and easy.”

SPD updated a couple hours later, saying “The Facebook Detectives are out in full force tonight! The tips are pouring in!”
