Seven Workers at Airport Café Versailles Arrested

Seven women who work at the Miami International Airport outpost of a local institution have been arrested this morning. The women all worked at Café Versailles in Terminal D at the airport, and all are accused of pocketing cash from the register.

Global Miami J.V. operates the concessions and restaurants in MIA, including two outposts of the famous Cuban Calle Ocho eatery Versailles. The company owners started suspecting that cash had gone missing from the register.

So a surveillance camera and a computer program that tracked sales were set up. Sure enough, there was enough evidence to suggest all seven women were in on a scheme to steal cash.

"They were putting money in their pockets," Christopher Descalzo, a partner in Global Miami, told NBC Miami.

The evidence was turned over to cops, and now all seven women face charges of theft and organized scheme to defraud.
