CLOSE to $200 in tips was stolen from Bryson's Place front counter earlier this week, leaving owner Lynn Bryson very upset.

Mrs Bryson said the tip jar and all its contents were swiped from the front counter on Tuesday afternoon.

"We were very busy," she said.

"No-one saw it happen."

The business owner said the money was bound for the multiple sclerosis charity at the end of the month.

"Each month we put the tip money towards a different charity," Mrs Bryson said.

"Usually we raise around $200, sometimes more." Mrs Bryson said the incident would not deter them from raising money.

"We will put another vase on the counter," she said.

"We won't let them beat us."

If you saw anything or have any information regarding the theft phone the Warwick Police on 4660 4444.
