Former waitress indicted in theft case

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – A former waitress was indicted Thursday on two counts of identity fraud and one count of forgery in connection to a theft case.

Erin Marks, 30, is accused of using customers’ credit card numbers to pay bills for cash-paying customers and then keeping the money. In late May, a customer told the owner of Stonebridge Grille & Tavern in Boardman that his card had been charged several additional times after he ate there, leading to a police investigation.

The owner believes that Marks, who formerly worked at the restaurant, was jotting down customers’ credit card information, then pocketing cash from other patrons and using the information to pay those bills, according to a police report.

She remains at the Mahoning County Jail on $10,000 bond and will be arraigned next week in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.
