Captain Janks, formally known as Thomas Cipriano, 42, of North Wales, was paid $350 to make an appearance at the Landslide Restaurant and Saloon this month, but never showed up, police said.
Restaurant owner Barbara Seguine was given a contract for $350, but said Cipriano didn’t follow through on the agreement.
“If he didn’t shake my hand and look me in the eye I guess I wouldn’t be as mad,” Seguine said.
Cipriano was charged with fourth-degree theft.
He has been released and a court date will be set in Bethlehem Township Municipal Court.
