RICHMOND — Waitress charged with credit card fraud

A waitress at a Richmond restaurant was charged with several counts of forgery and fraudulent use of a credit card when her supervisors discovered she was adding extra charges and larger tips to customers’ bills, according to Richmond Police Chief Larry Brock.

Autumn N. Lewis, 23, of Norwood Drive, was charged Thursday and taken to the Madison County Detention Center. She is facing four counts of forgery and four counts of fraudulent use of a credit card.

The name of the restaurant that employed Lewis was not disclosed in the RPD news release.

Managers from the restaurant contacted police Thursday morning and told officers that Lewis “had used the credit cards of four customers to place unauthorized charges, either by increasing the tip or adding another tab to the card,” according to Brock.

The fraudulent charges totaled $111.41, and the managers have credited the unauthorized charges back to the victims. Five more transactions are under investigation.

The managers said they confronted Lewis, and she left the restaurant. The officers found Lewis at her home a short time later and took her into custody without incident, according to Brock.

Summit Street home broken into

A resident in the 200 block of Summit Street reported Friday that his home had been broken into during the morning hours, and a Samsung 47-inch LED television and a Hewlett Packard desktop touchscreen computer were stolen.

Entry was gained by forcing open the front door. The estimated loss is $1,050.

iPad stolen from doctor’s waiting room

A complainant reported Friday that her 16GB iPad was stolen while she was at a doctor’s appointment in the 300 block of Radio Park Drive the previous afternoon. She had accidentally left the iPad, worth $500, in the waiting room, according to the RPD. When she realized her mistake, she called the doctor’s office but the staff was unable to find the iPad.

Other thefts:

• A complainant reported Sunday that her white iPhone 4, worth $300, was stolen while she attended a party on Ty Court during the early morning hours.

• A resident in the 200 block of Keystone Drive reported Thursday that a JVC CD player had been stolen from his unlocked vehicle, along with the car’s battery, sometimes during the prior week. The estimated loss was $200.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
