LOS ANGELES, May 22 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles waitress faces multiple identity theft charges for allegedly stealing customers' credit card numbers.

Jonathan Diamond of the city attorney's office said April DuBoise, who worked at the Hamburger Hamlet restaurant for six weeks, has been charged with nine identity theft and fraud-related counts along with five counts of grand theft, The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

The Los Angeles city attorney's office said DuBoise took at least six credit card numbers using her position at the restaurant and may have taken as many as 40. The office said $16,300 in unauthorized charges have been linked to DuBoise.

DuBoise was arrested after she was seen allegedly taking customers' credit cards into the restroom, apparently to run them through a number-recording device.

"That would be something that would look sort of suspicious to me," said Wayne Williams, deputy special agent in charge of the Los Angeles field office of the Secret Service.
