You must be related to the guy who stole from them to post such a stupid and untrue comment.

There is no way the allegations are true. Owners are probably just trying to recover the money they wasted.

Hey 2sides from Brooklyn, do you know how to read???? The newspaper accounting I read states the DA's office reports the guy admitted in fall to doing the strip clubs and trips to NY and stealing the money to do it.. Read things first before you go throwing around your mindless comments...

No three side, you left out the truth! There is hardly a person in Allentown that has a backbone or nutsack to cop to that¿ The ugly truth may hurt the plantiff as well as the defendant because both perseptions have become so misguided in the world as it is today!

@Agreeed, Silly Ass is a wack job. This dude did this not 1 time, not 2times, hell not even 3 times. This is the forth company he hit up. this company is the only one that pressed charges. It is a shame.

Mike, 4 times?? Dang! Where else did the fool work? Too bad the others didn't press charges. 160k is a heck of a lot of money to blow in 2 years .... He must have a lot of expensive 'toys' at his house thanks to the cosmo restsursnt!!!

I know Fortunato too. He personally ripped me off years ago. The only surprise is that it took this long for him to get caught. Stick to skimming the register and not leaving a paper trail you clown.
