SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police are looking for a tip jar that was stolen from a Salisbury pet groomer Monday.

Jedidiah Frick, an owner of Tails 'n Tubs, said there was about $200 in the jar.

"We didn't notice the jar was actually gone until Wednesday when we came back into the office," he said. "It was coming after a really busy weekend."

Three teen girls walked into the store and left. They returned a second time and decided to leave again. When they came back the third time, one girl went inside, grabbed the tip jar and ran out of the store.

Frick said the theft set his wife's family back.

"All that money goes toward her brother going to college, actually. He goes to SU. He's studying internationally in the English program," he said. "And all that money is necessary for us to help support him." 

Frick wants to see his money returned to him but would rather see a constructive punishment for the teens. 

He said it would be best to use it as a teaching lesson. "Right from wrong about what parents are doing, being absent. Or just not knowing what their kids are up to. That's more important for us," he said. 

Salisbury police are looking for the public's help. If you recognize any of the girls in the video you are asked to call the Salisbury Police Department.
