Police early Wednesday arrested a man who worked at a popular city restaurant for allegedly charging meals to a stolen credit card when customers paid in cash and pocketing their money.
According to a charge of financial-card fraud in an arrest warrant obtained June 29, Nicholas Arturo Myers, 25, of 1527 Crest Road in Raleigh rang up meals worth $2,968.51 on the stolen Wells Fargo card between March 18 and May 10 at Amedeo’s Restaurant at 3905 Western Blvd.
The charges included a tip, the warrant noted.
Police found Myers at his apartment about 2:30 a.m., according to arrest records.

After taking him into custody, police served him with two other Aug. 18 arrest warrants in which Wake County sheriff’s deputies accused him of breaking into a home on Noremac Drive in an unincorporated area of the county surrounded by the city of Raleigh and of felony larceny.
A second warrant from deputies accused him of pawning 60-inch and 32-inch televisions they said were taken during the break-in over the weekend of Aug. 5.
That warrant said Myers got $290 for televisions valued at a total $2,200. The charge was obtaining property by false pretense.
Myers was held in lieu of $15,000 bail.
