Surveillance video from an Italian restaurant in Stuart, Florida has led to the arrest of a Florida woman who confessed to inserting glass shards into her own restaurant food to get free meals.
In late September, Kaitlyn Murphy, 31, dined at 11 restaurants in Stuart, ordered and ate (most of) her food, and “just as she was finishing the meals, she claimed there was glass in her food,” according to the arrest affidavit from the Stuart Police Department.
Stuart, which has a population of just 16,000 people, is a pretty tight-knit community and word spread quickly about Murphy’s alleged scam. A break in the case came from surveillance footage of the suspect exiting Luna Italian Restaurant after dining at the eatery this fall.
“It’s a great garlic-knot place — a longtime establishment. A great place to grab a slice,” Jeffrey Kittredge, public information officer for the Stuart Police Department in Stuart told TODAY Food.
