Theft by deception

FLEMINGTON — Franck-Oliver Gbai, 21, of Philadelphia, was arrested for theft by deception after making 11 fraudulent purchases at Pizza Hut, totaling $304.99.

The Pizza Hut’s marketing and office manager at 543 High Street told Lamar State Police that a customer disputed multiple charges stemming from food orders placed between March 8 and April 25.

After investigation, the police discovered that Gbai was the suspect and once the payment and delivery of the food was successful, he contacted his bank and informed that the charges on his credit card were fraudulent. In turn, the bank would refund the money to Gbai and leave Pizza Hut with a loss of $304.99.

Gbai was charged with 11 counts of theft by deception through the District Court Office on 3-25-01.
