Cashier 'Tricked' Into Giving Customer $400

Incident occurred at the Golden Corral on Buford Drive.

Cashier 'Tricked' Into Giving Customer $400

A Golden Corral manager says a cashier in training was tricked into handing over $400 to a male customer during an April 5 incident at the Buford Drive restaurant.

The video surevillance of the incident shows black male -- approximately 6-foot-2 weighing 185 pounds and wearing a striped sweater, dark pants and a black Yankees baseball cap -- order and pay for his food. The male then handed the cashier an unknown amount of money. The cashier is seen on video making change for the bill she was handed. According to the Gwinnett County Police report, the male then repeatedly placed "unknown amounts of money on the counter as well as handing [the cashier] more bills."

As the cashier attempted to keep up with the change the male requested, the male continued to pick up and put down various sums of money. 

The manager told Gwinnett County Police she believes the customer must have realized the employee was new because the man kept trying to distract the cashier's trainer by asking her to fill "to go" containers for his order. The video surveillance showed the cashier's trainer return to the register and then leave again when the male made another request regarding his order.

By the time the order was complete, the man had managed to obtain $400. The male left the restaurant before the cashier realized what had transpired.

When interviewed by police, the cashier said the man "kept asking her for change." According to the cashier, the man said he was going to play poker later that day and needed smaller bills.

The case is listed as active.
