Fast food worker accused of stealing from customers

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-- A fast food worker must have thought she had found a surefire way to make some fast cash.

Police, however, said her scheme was illegal.

Dezirae J. Schulz, 18, of Jonesboro was charged with theft after police say she stole from customers at McDonalds, located at 111 E. Highland.

According to the initial police report, the restaurant manager contacted police after a customer complained about a false charge on their account.

Police said while working the drive-thru Schulz would swipe customers' credit cards.  If they did not want a receipt she would charge a $10 McDonald's gift card to the order, unbeknownst to the customer.

Later, when a customer would pay for cash, police said Schulz would swipe the gift card and pocket the cash.

When confronted about the thefts, Schulz reportedly told Officer Bryan Davis she had pulled the scam on about 7 customers.

She then handed the stolen money to the manager who said all customers would be reimbursed, the report stated.

Shulz is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, Dec. 30.
