A local hotel employee was arrested for making unauthorized charges on a guest’s bank card, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.

Steven Cook, Jr., 30, of Shreveport, is accused of using a previous customer’s debit card to pay for other guests’ rooms at the Merryton Inn on Monkhouse Drive. The illegal debit card activity was detected by the previous customer and reported to the hotel. Cook is also accused of manipulating the hotel’s computer management system to allow guests to stay at the hotel for free.

Cook was already in the Caddo Correctional Center on unrelated charges when Caddo Sheriff’s Detective Mike King added charges of credit card fraud by persons authorized to provide goods and services and misdemeanor theft.
