The following arrest information was supplied by the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety. It does not indicate a conviction.
The manager of J. Christopher's learned that six of his employees had not received their paychecks in December, but it was a month later before any of them apparently were deposited or cashed. The restaurant manager reported the paycheck thefts on Jan. 11 to Alpharetta police. Since the employees work primarily for tips, the total amount of the checks was $262.09. The manager suspected a former employee who had access to the checks, according to the incident report. Ivan Nolasco, 29, of Alpharetta, a former employee of the restaurant, was arrested Jan. 17 on two felony counts of identity fraud and was taken to Fulton County Jail on those and an immigration issue.
