A waitress was caught skimming customers' credit cards at a Chili's restaurant in Coral Springs and police suspect there are more victims.
Germithe Geffrard, 23, was charged with possession of a scanning device, which she admitted to hiding in her apron and using as often as possible during each shift, police said.
She obtained about 50 credit card numbers while working at the restaurant at 1650 University Dr., Coral Springs Lt. Joe McHugh said Saturday.
Police investigated after several customers complained about the fraudulent activity taking place between February and April, he said.
Geffrard admitted she had skimmed customers' credit cards and police arrested her Monday. Enter to win a pair of diamond earrings for Mother's Day
The Pompano Beach woman said she would scan patrons' credit cards properly at the register and then remove her own electronic scanner from her apron and skim the cards there.
She had an unknown accomplice who would then collect the credit card information, police said.
More charges could be pending against Geffrard as the investigation continues, McHugh said.
In a company statement released to the Sun Sentinel, Chili's Grill and Bar said, "This was an isolated incident involving one employee. Chilis is cooperating fully with authorities on their investigation, and this food servers employment ended when we learned of this conduct.

Not only is it a conservative hangout...the wings are phenomenal!
Thank You. I am on a few mailing lists, but this one i will add! :L-)
I doubt that she is from eastern Europe:
I wonder if we stopped in once. Is it on a major street like 441 or Jog?
Well, that’s a twofer. We used to have a couple of good places here, but not now. And I loves me some wings!
her mother saw the name on the label of an anti bacterial product and thought it was cool
It’s on Sample Road, west of University, in the 9000 Block.
It's a copy-and-paste artifact. There is an ad for the Mother's Day contest, and the text was caught up in the copy. The OP did not proofread after pasting, and there you have it. An ad in the story for the Mother's Day contest, which may drive Internet traffic to the Sentinel.
Hold on. According to this, if I get arrested by the police, I'm entered to win a pair of diamond earrings for Mother's Day?
I gotta run. I won't be available until I make bond.
I juust thought it was funny.
She looks like s swell person. :/
I looked on google, we have been to the one in Margate on 441. Good wings. I had forgotten about it (it’s a bit of a trek for us.
Alas, the one in Margate on 441 is closed now. That is the one where George W. Bush visited, and it was a weekly haunt for me. Everybody knew us by name there, but it was in a difficult location. Nothing seems to succeed in that particular strip mall, because there is no access directly from 441.
Well, bummer. We will have to hike up to the one you mentioned. I will write the address down and visit it. We do love wings. Wish it were a little bit closer, but heck, we do get up that way. It’s not that far from Joannes, and I go there for sewing stuff.
I had lunch there today...Caesar Salad with grilled Buffalo Chicken tenders on top. YUM! :-)
I live right near Joanne’s. Come and see me sometime. I LOVE to sew...haven’t done it for a while though.
