Pregnant IHOP waitress alters receipts for extra tip money

Posted: Updated:

JONESBORO, AR - (WMC-TV) - Police say one Mid-South waitress was altering receipts from her customers to pocket more tip money. She raked in hundreds by doing so at a IHOP in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

"Most people just throw their receipt back at the table [and] don't take the copies, but I take that because they can use the copy of the receipt to write for tips," said restaurant patron Lisa Justice.

Police arrested waitress Nicole McCay. They charged her with altering customer's receipts and pocketing around $300 dollars.

"She was actually altering the tip amounts on there, writing in a different number. If you left a three dollar tip, she'd change it to $8 or whatever," said Jonesboro police Sgt. Doug Formon.
