Troy police recently took in a man who was waiting for his $142 dinner at an upscale steakhouse.
The 30-year-old from West Bloomfield was waiting at the bar at Morton’s Steakhouse on Big Beaver Road in Troy shortly before 9pm on October 19.
The man had placed the order in advance and paid with a credit card number.
His problem, however, was that the card owner quickly learned of the $142 purchase and immediately called the restaurant to inquire.
The police were called and officers were dispatched to Morton’s.
“Employees advised that the subject who came to claim the fraudulently placed order was currently seated at the bar waiting for the food to be ready,” police said in a report.
They spoke to the man and then arrested him, took him to the city jail and charged him with stealing or withholding a financial transaction device without his consent.
The victim told officers that she did not know the man and did not know how we obtained his credit card information.
