House of Pies director Tarek Tahan used customer’s credit card at gas station, Bed, Bath & Beyond, prosecutors say
Tarek Tahan, 51, appeared before a judge on Monday morning.
Tahan was given a $ 1,000 bond and ordered not to contact the owner of the unauthorized credit card.
Police said last month that a man visited the restaurant’s location on Kirby Drive. Shortly after, he said he lost his credit card.
Court records indicate that a few days later, he found several fraudulent charges on his account, with transactions totaling over $ 1,500.

Video of the gas station and Bed, Bath and Beyond was used to help West University police locate Tahan, who was charged with credit card abuse and arrested.
Neither Tahan nor his lawyer spoke to ABC13 cameras at the courthouse.
But reporter Jeff Ehling learned during the appearance that Tahan was also ordered not to be in possession of credit cards or checks that did not belong to him while he was at large.
Tahan is expected to return to court in a few weeks.
Police added that he had a criminal history of trespassing.
