After posting the video, comments and tips came pouring in. So much so that the Dairy Queen Hyde Park location then took to its Facebook page and shared the following update:
Would really like to thank our wonderful community for reaching out to us. We do know who the people are and gave them a chance last night to return it but they wanted to play stupid. Seems many people were very eager to let us know who they are. It is in the hands of the HP police now. Thank you.

Sadly this isn't the first time that there has been a theft at the Hyde Park Dairy Queen.
