The shop says the boys asked to use their bathroom before stealing the jar and running out of the building.

A neighboring business, FukuBurger, says the same kids vandalized their bathroom.

A source at the FukuBurger says he heard that the news got back to a father of the boys and that the father turned his son over the police. This information has not been confirmed.
