A former Arlington pizza parlor owner was arrested Sunday on fraud charges over a year of being accused of repeatedly overcharging customers.
Elvan Kocak, 28, bonded out of jail on felony charges of schemes to defraud and criminal use of personal identification.
The former owner of Celino's Pizza on Cesery Boulevard came under fire in March of 2017 when customers noticed their bank account didn't match their pizza meal receipt.
Dozens complained online and to First Coast News of being overcharged up to $300.
Last year Kocak blamed his credit card machine vendor; then later, a hacker for the unhappy customers. He directed many of them to dispute the charges with their bank, saying the refund process would be "faster."
The Arlington residents that contacted First Coast News did receive refunds from Celino's or their financial institution, however many didn't buy the mishap was merely a glitch.
On Monday, Kocak said he expects the charges against him will be dropped and would not comment further. He no longer owns Celino's Pizza which was renamed Foreign Benji's Restaurant.
First Coast News is waiting to hear more details on the arrest from the State Attorney's Office.
The felony charge against Kocak for criminal use of personal identification designates the allegations involve over 30 victims or over $100,000 in losses.
