Richfield Burger King Cashier Suspected in Credit Card Theft

About $1,400 in fraudulent charges, including and iPhone 4S, appeared on the woman's card after a reportedly suspicious encounter with a Burger King cashier.

A Minneapolis woman suspects that a Richfield cashier used her credit card number to rack up $1,400 in online charges.

On May 21, the woman, a resident of the 4400 block of Xerxes Avenue, dined at a , 96 W. 66th St., with her 14-year-old son. According to the police report, she said that when she gave the cashier her Visa card, the employee “was acting suspicious[ly] and paid extra attention to the card."

Two days later, the woman received a call from Visa saying that her card had been used online to purchase an iPhone 4S for $700, along with another $700 charge that the credit card company is disputing, according to the report.

Police are still investigating the incident and accusations.

Wait. Wait. This news story is to say that this lady "suspects" that maybe it was the Burger King cashier?? What? Since when is it news that a lady has a fraudulent charge, and then just suspects she might know who did it. But the police or Visa card still has not given any proof that it's tied to the employee or Burger King? If I was the owner of that Burger King, I would sue patch.com for even slandering them in this weak news report. Please remove it from your site.

I appreciate your comment and I admit this is a sort of random story to come across, but it was a legit police report. The article doesn't state that the employee actually did any wrong doing, but rather someone was accusing him or her of doing so. The police reports are public, should law enforcement be accused of slander as well? If anything, without proof, the reporting party may be guilty of that.
