Police: Golden Town Buffet credit card scheme part of multi-state ring


GLENMONT, N.Y. – Investigators say there have been a series of incidents at Asian restaurants across the Northeast similar to the credit card scheme which closed the Golden Town Buffet.

Bethlehem Police say the scheme was a multi-state ring. They say similar incidents in other restaurants appear to be connected.

According to police, it seems a crime ring is training people to get jobs at the restaurants and use credit card skimmers to steal customer information.

Four people were arrested in the Golden Town Buffet case. Police say the thefts happened there without the restaurant's owners even knowing about it.

The restaurant in Glenmont closed in February.
