(KMOV) – A waiter of a popular Town and Country restaurant is accused of setting up an elaborate scheme to steal a customer’s credit card.
Richard Quick, 33, was charged Sept. 6 with stealing a credit card, a felony.
According to court documents, a man on July 25 dined at Yellowstone Café at Lamp and Lantern Village and discovered after leaving the credit card he used to pay was missing.
He returned to the restaurant but Quick, who waited on the victim, had already completed his work shift. That’s when the victim discovered several fraudulent purchases had been made on his card.
Police contacted Quick, who told officers he accidentally picked up the card and must have dropped it in his cousin’s car when he picked him up.
The cousin was later contacted by police and told them Quick had wanted to “rehearse” what the cousin might say to officers. He said Quick had given him the stolen credit card and asked him to make purchases with it.
Quick was arrested and taken into custody on a $10,000 bond.
