An unusual event has occurred in Georgia, where a restaurant owner has decided not to file charges against a thief who caught him stealing and instead offered him a job.

Carl Wallace woke up from the alarm system and saw on security cameras a man in tracksuits and a hood using a brick to break the window of his restaurant. The man then tried to open the box where the money was placed and saw that there was nothing there.

Wallace said: This behavior made me realize that this guy is not doing a good job, there must be other ways for this guy to make money.
