Authorities say Weat was just polishing off one of several post dinner deserts when he tried to pay for a meal using Lunsford’s stolen credit card. She says that “having no desire to pay for the fellow’s meal,” she called to report a man trying to pay for his meal with her stolen credit card.
The eatery is located at 5511 Dollarway Rd, Pine Bluff, AR.
Police spokesman Lt. David De Foor said in a news release that officers arrested 21-year-old Shamon West on Tuesday at Shannon’s Restaurant in Pine Bluff. De Foor says officers found other items on West that had been in Lunsford’s purse when it was stolen from her car Sunday at a nearby gas station while she was inside, including her Social Security card and driver’s license. source
West is being held at the Jefferson County jail in lieu of $2,840 bond on forgery and theft by receiving charges. Jail records don’t list an attorney.
