HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) - Hoboken police say a man posing as a waiter
collected $186 in cash from diners at two restaurants and walked
out with the money in his pocket.
Diners described the bogus waiter as a spikey-haired
20-something wearing a dark blue or black button-down shirt, yellow
tie and khaki pants.
Police say he approached two women in their 20s dining at
Hobson's Choice on Hudson Street around 7:20 p.m. on Thursday. He
asked if they needed anything else before paying. They said no and
handed him $90 in cash.
About two hours later he approached three women in their 40s
dining at Margherita's Pizza and Cafe on Washington Street. He
asked if they were ready to pay, took $96 in cash and never
returned with the change they asked for.
