This is not a good look. The manager of the Chick-fil-A in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport is making headlines after it was discovered that he had been embezzling money for over a year from the franchise. This is the opposite of that whole Minnesota nice thing.

The news of this crime broke late last week and if you think the headline itself is weird, just wait until you hear the details. The man was indicted by a grand jury earlier this month with five counts of wire fraud.

CBS News out of Minneapolis covered the story, reporting that the man embezzled about $144,000 over the course of thirteen months. The time period of the embezzlement spanned from September of 2022 to October of the following year, according to reports.

So how did he embezzle these funds? Throughout the course of those thirteen months, the man would collect cash from the Chick-fil-A location, along with cash from another restaurant in the airport owned by the same company.

He allegedly pocketed the money instead of putting it into the safety deposit box like he was supposed to and used cash receipts so things couldn't be traced. He also fought off suspicion by saying that the payments were delayed, not missing.


It's what this man did with the money that has people talking, however. The Star Tribune reports that he used his funds for online sports betting and jewelry. That's not all, though. He also used it to pay for OnlyFans, an internet subscription service where you can pay for access to content creators, some of which is explicit.

As if that wasn't enough, he also sent funds to other airport workers, females in particular in exchange for racy photographs and videos, according to reports. The man in question is due for his first court appearance on Valentine's Day. How romantic.
