MILLBROOK, Alabama (WSFA/Gray News) — Alabama police arrested a fast-food restaurant employee after a customer claimed his debit card information was stolen.
Millbrook Police Chief PK Johnson said an investigation began last weekend when a resident told them someone was using their debit card information to make purchases from various businesses.
WSFA reports that detectives narrowed down who had access to the person’s information and determined this happened when the card was used at a McDonald’s drive-thru.
Authorities learned that an employee, identified as 20-year-old Shytavious Davis, took photos of the person’s debit card before returning it.
Security video confirmed Davis took photos of the card, according to police. Davis was subsequently arrested on Thursday and faces charges of identity theft.
According to court records, the 20-year-old was released from the Elmore County Jail with $10,000.
The police chief encouraged anyone who used a credit or debit card at McDonald’s in Millbrook around May 6 to check their account.
“This case remains active as we want to make sure we have no other victims,” Johnson said in a press release.
If anyone has unauthorized purchases, they are urged to contact the Millbrook Police Department at 334-285-5603.
