SHREVEOPRT, LA (KSLA) – "The guys basically had no jobs, and they were video game players," said White Collar Crimes investigator Bobby Herring. He's talking about 21 year- old Francis Gallagher, and 17 year- old, Taylor Powell.
Herring says they bought pizza using other people's money.
"Up to 10,000 dollars in product from Dominoes," said Herring.
The Caddo Sheriff's Office says the pizza lovers used their cyber-world connections as avid gamers to get other people's credit card numbers. Herring said another gamer would supply them credit card numbers, then they would simply place their orders – lots and lots of orders.
"Dominoes pizza initiated the investigation they came to us they were getting complaints from credit car holders across the U.S." said Herring.
Gallagher and Taylor reportedly over tipped the pizza delivery to the tune of about 50 bucks, and ask for about half of that back.
Residents in the area said they noticed a lot of pizzas being delivered to the house located just off Jefferson Paige Road in Shreveport.
"I would see their vans, black automobiles, they'll stop and get out and get their case, and go to the door, knock and they would stay in there 15 to 20 minutes, and then they would leave," said Willard Philyaw, a neighbor.
Phillyaw says he always thought it was strange how often those deliveries were made.
"…usually once or twice a week," said Philyaw.
Some deliveries were about a hundred bucks a pop, all reportedly with someone else's dough.
"I've never quite seen anything like that with pizzas," said Herring.
Dominoes went out of it's way to ensure the best customer service for people who really weren't even customers, the pizza company repaid them for the pizzas they never enjoyed.
If convicted of I.D. theft, the two young men could be forced to repay Dominoes, and they also face up to ten years in jail.
Another arrest could be on the way, investigators say there is a person of interest in this ongoing investigation.
