— Authorities say a restaurant manager went home with more than just a doggie bag.

Jonathan Dean is in jail, charged with embezzling more than $70,000 from the Tirnanog restaurant.

Dean used to manage the downtown Raleigh pub.

Investigators say Dean took money from the restaurant's deposits. They say in some cases, he wrote $20,000 checks to himself.
