Tip-stealing Uber passenger identified as Brooklyn teen

Uber has long flouted regulations around its drivers but in recent days has taken the step of preventing drivers

Just seconds before the cab was about finish the ride, a woman sitting at the center of the backseat extended her hand to the Uber tip jar.

But when she was about to get out of the auto, she put her hand in the tip jar but immediately then stopped. As the young thief made her move for the money, the driver had his head turned toward his window and had no idea that his tips were likely about to be used to buy a round of drinks.

After backing out, she then looks at the rear-view mirror to see if the Uber worker is looking and grabs the cash and flees.

MailOnline announced that the robbery occurred in New York City in August, and the driver said that he reached Uber, yet it said that it couldn't do anything.

It is only moments later that he notices something unusual out of the corner of his eye - that his tip jar is entirely empty.

"This is right after you stole the money from that Uber driver".

"We understand your frustration with this experience".

Gabrielle Canales, who calls herself Gabita on Instagram, was identified on Tuesday when the video, recorded by driver Mohammed H. Bhuiyan, was posted online, the Daily Mail reported. "We've endeavored to contact the rider by telephone and email, yet haven't possessed the capacity to determine this issue".

The email added: "The rider responded to us and advised us that she didn't steal your cash from the tip jar".

However, he told ViralHog he was too busy with work and never filed a police report.

The Uber driver lodged a complaint with his company but was told he would have to take his dash cam footage to police, as the rider had denied she had stolen anything.

Asked when exactly the company revoked the woman's ability to use the ride-calling app, the spokesperson failed to respond.
