Another victim reports fraud after eating at Jonesboro restaurant

JONESBORO, AR  (KAIT) – Less than two months after more than 25 people reported fraudulent charges on their credit cards, another victim has come forward after eating at a local restaurant. According to Jonesboro Police, at least $2,500 in fraudulent charges were racked up on a company credit card two weeks after a meal.

According to a police report, Octavious Baker of Holmes Tile & Marble claimed to have eaten at Kimono's Steak House in Jonesboro in late October, and someone spent $522 at Walmart on Highland on Saturday, November 9th, 2013. There were five other charges that same day at the Walmart Supercenter in Trumann, according to the report.

In November, the owners of Kimono told Region 8 News that two suspects identified by police never worked at the restaurant. They also said they'd offer a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

No one has been arrested.

If you've eaten at Kimono recently and discovered suspicious charges on your credit card, you're urged to call police at 870-935-STOP.
