An old Burger King slogan states “Sometimes, you gotta break the rules.”
Two employees apparently took that a little too seriously a little over a week ago when the allegedly took pictures of a customer’s credit card at the drive-through then used the card information to attempt to make nine purchases totaling $1,303. As a result of the investigation, Zyikieus Tashun Riles, 17, and a 16-year-old juvenile were arrested on multiple charges.
A Douglas Police Department incident report states that the alleged credit card information theft occurred on May 21. It was reported on May 23. The victim is from Meigs.
The investigating officer met with a local Burger King representative on May 23 and was told that the incident was caught on video camera. The report states that the juvenile took the card from the customer in the drive-through line then turned his back to the customer in an effort to conceal what happened next. The juvenile held the card so that Riles could photograph the card. The report states that Riles took the photo then walked away.
On May 22, the victim noticed that there were unauthorized charges on her account. The charges were as follows: McDonald’s for $1, Innocency Clothes for $110, GameStop for $1, Amazon — two for $1, Apple — three for $1, Apple for $1,186. The victim added that only the McDonald’s charge went through; she cancelled her card and that stopped the others. The attempted charges totaled $1,303.
After meeting with the Burger King representative, the officer returned to the restaurant when the two suspects were supposed to report for work. When he arrived, Riles was there, the juvenile wasn’t. The report states that Riles told the officer that he was attempting to pay the juvenile for a meal and the juvenile told him to take a photo of the card. The juvenile then told Riles to send the picture of the card to his Snapchat account, the report states. Riles also stated that he did not know anything about any money getting spent on the card. According to the report, Riles showed the officer his phone and there were no photos of the card. Riles was arrested and transported to the Coffee County Jail.
The juvenile went to the police department with his mother and met with the officer. According to the report, the juvenile refused to give consent to search his phone. He also declined to speak with officers, the report says. The officer filled out a juvenile complaint form and a juvenile release form. The juvenile was released to his mother. The Department of Juvenile Justice would handle that portion of the investigation moving forward.
Riles was charged with six counts of financial transaction card fraud. He has been released on bond. The juvenile also has felony charges pending.
