In last night's episode of "Mystery Diners" titled, "Night Shift," Charles Styles and his crew of undercover diners come to Putter's Bar & Grill in Las Vegas, Nev. where general manager, Janaya Mallow suspects that one of her employees is keeping the revenue for himself.
Charles comes to meet Janaya, who hopes to someday have her own bar and takes her job very seriously. The overnight manager-bartender's sales have fallen dramatically over the last three months. She cannot be there every minute of the day, and needs to find out why sales are so low.
The focus is on JR, the overnight bartender. Cameras have been set up all over the area, and three diners will be sent in order to act like customers. One is already at the bar when JR comes in. The bar is full and JR goes to his car and comes out with a keg. He is tapping his own keg and using his own liquor and conducting his own business in the bar and announced that the "Junkyard" was now open. In the control room, they are watching this entire episode unfold. He is one slick character. Suddenly, a bunch of motorcycles arrive and one of them is at the door charging a cover charge. When two pretty women arrive, JR even drinks with them. JR's friends go behind the bar and into the kitchen to cook their own food. When they all have a free shot, they then smash the glass on the floor. Now she knows why the place is a pigpen when she arrives in the morning.
As JR gets a phone call and is about to leave the premises and put a friend in command; Janaya goes to get him. He is adamant that he did nothing wrong and will not let the cameras in his face.
After four months, the profits are back up at Putter's and JR has not been seen or heard from since. Actions like this may not have been uncovered if not for Charles Stiles and the "Mystery Diners."
