Defrauding a restaurant

BURTON —On Oct. 22, after it was reported two unknown females failed to pay their bill, an officer responded by going to Applebee’s on Court Street. Dispatch was advised the females left the establishment prior to the officer arriving. The restaurant manager said one female was shorter and heavyset, wearing a purple cardigan and black leggings, and the other female was taller and skinny, wearing a gray sweat suit. Both females were described to be in their mid-20s to early 30s. The manager said the women gave wait staff trouble with their seating arrangement and were moved to several different tables, and they were content with being seated in a booth near a door. The women reportedly ordered alcoholic drinks and sent them back, saying their glasses were not full enough. The manager stated he accommodated them, but did not take the first drinks off their bill. When the females were given a bill totaling $14 plus tax, they allegedly sent the waiter to get them a glass of water. At that time, they were said to sneak out the door and get into a newer model black Dodge vehicle. The manager said he went outside and got the plate number off the vehicle, which he provided to the officer. The officer checked the area, but was unable to locate the suspects. — T.T.
