RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ridgeland police say a MSNewsNow.com user helped identify a man suspected of stealing a tip jar at a Ridgeland bar.

Lt. John Neal with the Ridgeland Police Department says the tipster recognized the suspect in pictures on WLBT's website and shared the information with police. William K. Snare, 65, of Brandon, was arrested Friday.

Police say the tip jar filled with money was sitting on the counter at Shuckers Oyster Bar July 27 around midnight when a man took it and hid it under his jacket.

Snare has posted bond and will appeared in court Sept. 17.
