LPD Looking for Possible Credit Card Scam Victims
Police are asking people who may have dined at a Lawrenceville, Ga. restaurant to double check their debit and credit card statements after a waitress was arrested for skimming cards.
Over the weekend, police arrested Laura-Grace Tanis, a waitress at the restaurant. According to a police report, Tanis used a portable electronic skimmer to capture information from customers credit cards. She was charged with Financial Credit Card Theft and Criminal Possession of Financial Transaction Card Forgery Device.
Tanis has only been charged with one count so far, but Lawrenceville police are looking into whether this was an isolated incident. Investigators are following leads that may show it was in fact a more extensive network of people involved in the card skimming scheme.
LPD is asking anyone who has dined at the Grayson Hwy restaurant to look over their bank and credit card statements for any unusual or fraudulent charges. If you should find something amiss, please contact Lawrenceville Police Detectives at (770) 963-2443.
