The owner of a Moorpark pizza restaurant received a complaint that Jonathan Rutherford had improperly written down credit card information from a customer while delivering a pizza.

The owner investigated, firing the 28 year old Thousand Oaks man, and reporting what had occurred to sheriff’s deputies.
