Thief Caught Stealing From Tip Jar, Charity Money For Cancer Patient

A thief was captured on surveillance video Sunday night stealing money from a tip jar at a Hungry Howie's Pizza & Subs in Davie.

Video shows the thief also stole money being raised for a woman with cancer.

Sharron Berry owns several Hungry Howie's restaurants across South Florida. When she learned a Cooper City woman named Rhea Ranon had been diagnosed with breast cancer, she decided to raise money to help her offset some of her bills. 

Berry's son was working the dinner rush over the weekend when he was told by another customer that a man had stolen money from the restaurant's tip jar.

Berry and her husband immediately pulled up their surveillance system and when they reviewed the footage, they noticed he also dipped into the jar filled with cash for Ranon.

They were able to identify the man and gave his information to police.

Police later arrested the suspect, identified as Michael Calareso, who they said admitted to stealing about $15.

Despite the theft, money is still being raised for Ranon as she continues her battle against breast cancer.
