PORTLAND – A burglar’s target may have cost him his freedom.

A man walked into the Pizzicato restaurant on East Burnside Thursday night and grabbed the tip jar, then ran off.

But he didn’t get far.

Employees apparently were not okay with seeing their tip jar go out the door, so they chased down the suspect him, grabbed him and held him until police arrived.

The suspect’s name has not yet been released.
