GONZALES, La. (AP) - A 20-year-old Gonzales pizza delivery driver has been arrested after allegedly inflating the size of tips given him by cardholders.

The Advocate reports Jordan Morgan was booked into the Ascension Parish Jail last week on two counts of forgery and theft after his employer uncovered tip discrepancies.

Police say Morgan began working as a delivery driver on May 9, and after less than two weeks on the job, customers alleged that he altered two credit card receipts by increasing the tip amounts after delivering pizzas to customers.

Management discovered the altered receipts on May 18, notified the customers and alerted authorities.

It was unclear whether Morgan has an attorney.
