Strongsville Police Blotter: Order for 100 Calzones = Scam
Also, woman says friend did meth with her, then stole money
Someone called Georgio's, 15037 Pearl Rd., May 21 with a tasty order -- 100 calzones and 100 salads.
And they'd even pay extra for it and have the restaurant send back the overage.
An alert employee recognized it as a scam. She called police to make them aware the con, which was also reported earlier this year, is going around again.
