Posted: Updated:

LA MESA (CNS) - La Mesa police Tuesday were looking for a thief who apologetically stole a tip jar from a doughnut shop, briefly struggling with an employee in the process.

The jar was stolen from the Yum Yum Donuts at 7550 El Cajon Blvd. late Monday morning, according to La Mesa police.

The thief told the employee he was sorry, saying he was broke and needed the money, police said.

The employee was not hurt in the brief struggle he had with the thief, who got away with about $10, police said.

The thief -- who wore a white bandana over his face -- was described as roughly 16-20 years old. A picture of him was captured on a store surveillance camera, police said.
