A McDonald’s employee in West Monroe, Louisiana is facing identity theft charges after being accused of taking photos of customer credit cards while she worked behind the front counter of the restaurant, police said.
Zynique Mitchell, 18, told officers that she took photographs of the credit cards during work and attempted to use them to purchase items online later, the Monroe News Star reported.
Officers reported that photos of credit cards were found on her phone, according to court documents.
Mitchell told police she tried to use one of the cards but couldn’t complete the purchase, according to police.
During the interview, officers searched Mitchell’s purse and found two unmarked pill bottles, according to court papers.
Mitchell was arrested Thursday on three counts of identity theft and two counts of sale, distribution or possession of a legend drug without a prescription.
She is currently in jail in lieu of a $6,500 bond.
