(Scroll down for video) A waitress was arrested, charged and convicted of theft after stealing tip jars from restaurants, prosecutors in California said.

The former juice store employee has pleaded no contest to felony grand theft for stealing money from the shop’s cash register, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Jessica Mary Shub, 20, of Beverly Hills, entered the plea to one count of grand theft of personal property.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark Windham of the Airport Branch sentenced Shub to one year in a live-in residential drug rehabilitation facility, three years of formal probation and ordered her to pay $1,500 in restitution.

The cash register theft happened over a two-month period, while the defendant worked at Jamba Juice, prosecutors said.

Months later, Shub was allegedly caught stealing an undetermined amount of money from the tip jars at various Beverly Hills businesses that included a pizzeria and an ice cream parlor.

As a result of the defendant’s no contest plea in the felony case, the misdemeanor charges have been dismissed.
