McDonald’s employee steals customer’s debit card info, police say

MILLBROOK, Ala. (WSFA) – Millbrook Police have arrested a local fast food worker on allegations that she used a customer’s identity to make illegal purchases.

Millbrook Police Chief PK Johnson said the investigation began over the weekend when the victim said someone had used his debit card information at various businesses. Detectives determined who had access to the victim’s information and determined that it happened when the victim used the card at the local McDonald’s drive-thru.

Johnson said he learned that an employee, identified as 20-year-old Shytavious Davis, took photos of the victim’s debit card before returning it. He said the security video confirmed it.

Davis was arrested Thursday on a charge of identity theft, the chief said. Court documents say she was bailed out of Elmore County Jail with $10,000 later that night.

Johnson encourages anyone who used a credit or debit card at McDonald’s in Millbrook around May 6 to review their account for any unauthorized purchases that may have taken place. Contact the police department if there is suspicious activity on your card.

“This case remains active as we want to ensure we have no additional victims,” ​​Johnson said in a press release. “In closing, we strongly recommend that you check your debit and credit accounts regularly to ensure there are no irregularities. It’s a shame you had to do this, but sadly, that’s the world we live in today.
