Restaurant warns about scammer

Posted: Updated:

Restaurants say they've been scammed by a woman's clever scheme.

A woman sat down at a bar at Papa-P's on Tuesday around 11:00 a.m.

The restaurant's owner tells FOX 5 the woman said she needed to get cigarettes out of her car because she wanted to go smoke on the patio. She left a wallet on the table, went outside and drove away.

Caron Catalan, the owner, says it was a cheap wallet and empty of anything valuable.

The woman had a $50 bill that included three double shots of whiskey.

The restaurant has security video, but police say without a name there is little that can be done.

Other businesses say the woman did the same thing to them.
