A customer accidentally left behind a credit card at a Taco Mac in Alpharetta.
A waiter is accused of taking advantage of the situation within hours, getting himself fired and arrested as a result.
Krishon Termaine Miller of Snellville was arrested after allegedly using the credit card at three locations within hours of swiping it at the restaurant on State Bridge Road, Alpharetta police told Channel 2 Action News.
A different waiter initially found the card in March 2018 and gave it to a manager, Sgt. Howard Miller told Channel 2. However, when the lost card’s owner returned the following day, the card was gone.
“(We) looked at some surveillance and captured one of the employees at the time enter the office, go into the cash drawer (and) remove about $50 worth of cash along with the victim’s credit card,” the sergeant said.
Police found the suspect more than a year later, on April 25, and charged him with financial transaction card theft and financial transaction card fraud, according to Fulton County jail records. He also has a hold out of Clayton County.
In Alpharetta, police are still trying to determine if this is the only time he’s allegedly stolen someone’s credit card.
The man spent three days in jail before bonding out for $10,000, records show.
