On May 26 at a Jersey Mike’s in Hemet, California, Recehlle Marie Williams, 33, is in a video shared by Fox 11 at the counter of the restaurant.

In the video, Williams talks to an employee before throwing something at the worker, who throws it right back.

Williams then picked up napkins and threw them before grabbing the tip jar, walking over to a refrigerator and grabbing a bottled drink.

Another employee can be seen standing and blocking the doorway, but Williams barrels through and out the door.

Williams was arrested on June 1 after police made a traffic stop, authorities said. She was charged with second-degree robbery and second-degree burglary for her alleged actions and the sandwich shop, Hemet police said.

Williams is being held at Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in lieu of $30,000 bail — roughly 3,600 sandwiches — police said.t
