MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Bibb County deputies need help finding three women accused of adding tips to “pick up” orders on their job at Ole Times Country Buffet on Eisenhower Parkway.

Deputies identified the women as Ja’Nya Taylor, Damaiha Reed, and Dalendria Lowe.

According to a news release, the former employees are accused of going into the computer system and adding tips to “pick-up” orders. Deputies say they did this when customers did not leave a tip.

Deputies say the occurrences happened between May 22, 2020 through June 15, 2020.

According to deputies, camera footage shows the three females — at different times — accessing the computer to cash out the customers. Cameras also show once the customers walked away, the suspects would open the cash drawer and pocket the cash.

Between the three employees, an investigation revealed stolen tips charged against 258 customers, totaling around $824.50.

Also, Ole Times Country Buffet terminated all three employees upon the discovery of thefts.
