BROWNSVILLE, Texas (ValleyCentral) — A waiter was arrested after allegedly using a money-tranfer app to steal $50 from a customer’s credit card, according to the Brownsville Police Department.
Jesus Humberto Blanco, 28, was arrested Feb. 8 on charges of credit abuse, the police department said.
On Monday, the police department told ValleyCentral that the money was transferred Feb. 1 at a restaurant on the 2400 block of Pablo Kislel Boulevard where Blanco was working as a waiter. Blanco allegedly used a customer’s credit card to send himself $50 through Cash App, according to police.
