Ocean City police officers arrested Leo Clarke, 43, of Pocono Pines, Pennsylvania, for theft and a theft scheme on July 16.
The day prior, police met with a restaurant manager who said Clarke was stealing from the restaurant inside a hotel.
Police reported hotel guests receive a 20 percent discount on their checks at the restaurant. After the guests leave, Clarke, a server, would discount the check again, print a new receipt and pocket the money from the discount.
The manager stated Clarke was stealing money from the restaurant every day he worked in July.
After calculations were complete on cash and room charges, employees discovered Clarke pocketed a total of $1,041.65 since June 1, which is not including credit card charges and totals are expected to increase once those numbers are calculated.
