SMYRNA — An IHOP waiter was arrested Saturday and charged with stealing from customers and the restaurant, which is located on Cobb Parkway near Cumberland Boulevard.

Jerrett Brown, 26, of Lawrenceville is charged with multiple counts of identify theft for using the credit card of one customer to pay for the bill of another cash-paying customer. Brown then pocketed the cash, according to the arrest warrant.

Brown is also charged with finding one person’s wallet, which included a credit card, driver’s license and military identification, and using the information to receive discounts.

He is also accused of using customers’ credit cards to make online purchases.

Brown is being held in the Smyrna Jail.

Wow, quite the little racket he had going! Petty yes, but just a bit too much to fly "under the radar" forever. I don't see a big deal about his using peoples loyalty cards and ID's in order to receive minor discounts, but it doesn't seem he had any intention to return the "found" items to their owners.

My ex husband works with this guy, but doesn't know him well. I may have met him once, and I'm glad I didn't leave My purse sitting around him!

I wonder how he really obtained the numerous credit cards he said he "found" in Norcross and why he'd commute to Smyrna when there are closer restaurants to work at near his home.

He sounds more like a shady character and a general scumbag rather than a genuine menace to others.
