WOODBURY, Minn. -- A pair of Woodbury Burger King workers apparently wanted it their way, according to criminal charges.

Prechez Ariane Natira Anderson and Deantre Rickey-Rene Squalls are accused of using their jobs at the fast food restaurant as a ploy to steal a customer’s credit card information and purchase a television set. Anderson, of St. Paul, and Squalls, of Minneapolis, were each charged with one count of aiding and abetting financial card fraud, a felony.

Woodbury police received a report in March of a fraudulent online purchase made for a $694 TV through Walmart. The complainant also reported a fraudulent attempt to buy $2,801 in merchandise through Apple.com using the same card.

According to a criminal complaint, investigators learned the purchase was made using the complainant’s credit card, which she had last used at Burger King. The woman hadn’t realized until later that the drive-thru cashier had never returned the card.

Police investigated the report at Burger King, where an officer witnessed Squalls dropping off Anderson for her shift. Squalls and his vehicle later matched up with surveillance video of a man picking up the TV set from the Eagan Walmart, according to the complaint.
