Man Tries to Pay for Beer on Miami Beach with Bartender's Very Own Stolen Credit Card

David Weber might now be one of the world's most unlucky petty criminals. He broke into a car parked in a Miami Beach parking lot on Monday night and swiped a credit card. He then walked into the Clevelander to buy a beer, which he tried to pay for with the stolen credit card. Turns out that the card he had just stolen belonged to none other than the very bartender who was serving him.

According to the Miami Herald, the incident happened just before midnight on Monday night.

Dumbfounded that he had just been handed his own credit card by a total stranger, the bartender had Clevelander security call the police.

Webster, who is homeless, initially told the police that he had found the card on the ground.

Weber, 53, is being hold on charges of petit theft and credit card fraud in lieu of $1500 bond.
