A former North Shore waitress was jailed Friday on charges that she forged credit-card signatures and stole from two dozen restaurant customers.

Tonya M. Shrum, 32, of the Hill District worked for the Clark Bar & Grill between late June and early August when she accepted cash payments from some customers, sometimes kept the money and charged the meals to other visitors' cards under forged signatures, according to a criminal complaint. Police said the restaurant on Martindale Street lost about $1,628 overall.

Shrum denied any wrongdoing, according to the complaint. A Clark Bar manager said the restaurant is reimbursing everyone affected but declined further comment.

The restaurant fired Shrum, who is charged with 26 counts of forgery, 26 counts of access device fraud and one count of theft by deception. She was taken to the Allegheny County Jail in lieu of posting $10,000 bail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
