Gwinnett County investigators have charged three people with deceiving applicants for a fictitious nightclub into paying about $260 apiece to cover bartending lessons, uniforms and a special license for illegal immigrants to serve alcohol.
Police say applicants went to the food court at Gwinnett Place Mall for interviews after seeing advertisements for the job openings at a new club called "Escapade 2010." Investigators said they learned there were no plans for a club at the advertised location.
Charged with misdemeanor theft by deception were 20-year-old Francisco Vaquera, 24-year-old Jesus Lizaggara and 35-year-old Doris Olvera, all of Snellville. Olvera also was charged with theft by conversion, a felony, and remained jailed Monday in lieu of $66,600 bail.
