Sheriff's Beat: Restaurant says employee was taking money

TAHLEQUAH — Employees at a Cherokee County restaurant filed a report with sheriff’s deputies Wednesday after discovering an employee had been taking money.

Deputies said a manager at Los Ranchos became suspicious of a waitress, and learned the woman had told customers to leave her “big tips” and not to worry about paying for the meals. When confronted, the waitress admitted she had been giving food away to customers. Meal tickets and cash were later found inside a large Christmas stocking.

In other matters, deputies spoke to Kevin Churchwell this week after Churchwell discovered a trailer had been stolen from an AT&T cell tower site on State Highway 10. Churchwell said a number of other tools and property are missing as well.

Inetta Liggins filed an information report Wednesday.

Deputy Jarrick Snyder filed a report Thursday after a stolen car was found abandoned at a car wash on Fourth Street.
