Gabrielle Canales, who calls herself Gabita on social media, was identified on Tuesday after footage of her stealing cash from driver Mohammed H. Bhuiyan's tip jar in August went viral.
On August 12, a scantily-clad Canales was filmed reaching into his jar and snatching his cash as she got out of the car with two friends.
The footage went viral on Tuesday after reappearing online but Canales was remorseless and appeared to revel in her newfound infamy.
She shared screenshots of news articles about it on Instagram and Snapchat and said she 'only' took $5 from the man which she claims to have returned later.
Before getting into his car, she posed in her underwear in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, for two Instagram pictures. The young girl is believed to have grown up in Central Islip, New York.
Is it me or is she just looking right into the camera?? Like she knew she was going to get caught. Something like this reeks of publicity stunt but also she's nobody so I don't know how she would have thought this would pan out. Still... She is scum. I know a few friends that drive Uber on the side to make some extra cash and most other Uber drivers I talk to tell me they do it on the side which means they need that money. So to come through and steal those tips is bullllllll. And worst yet, even though her face is plastered everywhere I feel like she's even happier now... Unless charges are filed. We shall wait and see!
