More than two dozen current and former waiters and their
associates from some of the city's top steakhouses have been arrested in
an alleged identity theft ring, accused of stealing credit card numbers
from wealthy customers, authorities said Friday.
The Manhattan district attorney, police and the U.S. Secret Service
announced the arrests Friday involving a 28-person ring that operated at
top metro-area restaurants like Smith & Wollensky, Capital Grille
and Wolfgang Steak, as well as Morton’s in Stamford, Conn. and the
Bicycle Club in New Jersey.
The story was first reported Thursday by NBC New York.
