BETHLEHEM – Police have made another arrest in connection with credit card skimming at a Chinese restaurant in Bethlehem.

Police have been investigating credit card skimming at Gold Town Buffet since August 2013.

Several employees have been arrested, accused of stealing the credit card numbers of customers and selling them.

Police say 51-year-old Bao Hua Liu, of Manhatten, used those card numbers to buy merchandise and gift cards.

Liu faces several felony charges including identity theft, grand larceny and conspiracy.

He sits in the Albany County jail without bail and is due back in court on Friday.
