LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police are searching for a man who stole about $178,000 from the safe of a Los Angeles bartender who had pooled the pile of cash from nearly a quarter- century worth of tips.

The Daily Breeze reports surveillance video from a neighbor’s home recorded images of a suspect carrying the safe on his shoulder. No arrests have been made.

Police say the bartender saved the tips for the past 24 years, exchanging them for $100 and $2 bills and then placing them in a home safe. The money was supposed to be for his three children.

Nothing else was taken from the home. The bartender said he never talked about the money.
