An Elkhart man and his girlfriend are accused of dining and dashing at a string of local restaurants in recent weeks.
Investigators say 39-year-old Ryan Hayes and a woman skipped out on the bill at multiple restaurants, including Dandino’s Supper Club in Goshen, where their bill totaled $128, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.
An employee at Dandido’s posted about the pair on Facebook and heard from several other local restaurants reporting similiar stories. An alert bartender at Chili’s in Goshen spotted the two and called police who caught up to them.
Hayes claimed poverty as to why they didn’t pay their bills. He’s charged with resisting law enforcement and theft.
