Police in New Jersey said a man tricked patrons at two restaurants into giving him a total of $186 by pretending to be a waiter.

Investigators said a man in his 20s with a spiky hair style approached two women dining at Hobson's Choice restaurant in Hoboken and accepted their $90 cash payment for their meal, The Jersey Journal of Jersey City, N.J., reported Monday.

The man was next spotted at Margherita's Pizza and Cafe at about 9 p.m. the same day and asked three women at a table if they were ready to pay, police said.

He took the money from them and walked straight out of the restaurant, said Anthony Buzzerio, a manager at the restaurant.

The women told police they had given the man $96 for a $66 bill and had expected change.

Buzzerio said the restaurant was forced to comp the women's bill.

Once we saw that they had put the money on the table -- we wouldn't charge the customers twice, he said.

This is the first time I've come across something like this, Buzzerio said. Hopefully he gets what's coming to him.
