Hines Ward responded to the incident Thursday with this statement: "It’s an unfortunate situation, but I’m grateful that we were able to catch it before it went any farther. I️ give credit to my restaurant partner, Howard Shiller, for handling this matter swiftly and professionally and for taking measures to ensure that things like this never happen again."
“We were gaining more gift cards than we sold, so the initial thought is, 'Oh, the managers are coding these things wrong,' but a forensic audit revealed something else,” restaurant owner Howard Shiller said.
Cook had no comment, but according to the criminal complaint that Channel 11 obtained, Cook admitted to stealing the cash and told police she has no idea of the amount that she had taken.
According to that restaurant audit, she rung up more than $73,000 in fake sales while she worked there from August 2015 to October 2017.
“When you have all these employees coming to you going, 'I can't believe that happened to you. We love this place; we love working here. We can't believe she did that.' And I said, 'Well, guys, it wasn't your fault, but it will be fine,'” Shiller said.
Cook is behind bars in Allegheny County on a probation violation stemming from a similar crime from years ago.
