HOBOKEN, N.J. — Police in New Jersey say a man posing as a waiter collected $186 in cash from diners at two restaurants and walked out with the money in his pocket.
Diners described the bogus waiter as a spikey-haired 20-something in button-down shirt, yellow tie and khaki pants.
Police say he approached two women at one restaurant around 7:20 p.m., asked if they needed anything else before paying.
They said no and handed him $90 in cash.
About two hours later he approached three women dining at another eatery, where he took $96 in cash.
They got worried when he didn’t return with their change.
