Restaurant Claims To Have Used Track And Trace To Catch Dine-And-Dashers

Restaurant Claims To Have Used Track And Trace To Catch Dine-And-Dashers

A restaurant claims it has tracked down a couple of diners who decided they'd make a run for it without paying for their meal using the track and trace details the pair had left before they sat down.

Now, the police are investigating this still, so we can't say for sure if the perpetrators have actually been found yet, but the restaurant are calling the pair 'the thickest thieves'.

They've certainly got a point, as it would be ridiculously dumb to try to commit a crime in a place where you've just written down your name and contact number for the proprietors.

The restaurant in question is called Ziggy's, and it's in St Andrews in Scotland. They say the pair came in for some scran on Monday evening (28 September) with their dog and two kids, leaving their details upon entry as everyone is required to do nowadays.

Then, after finishing up their meal, they did a runner, and came into an altercation with a delivery driver who took down their registration plate.

That gave the restaurant an even better chance of tracking them down.

Seriously, these guys might as well have left a blood sample, business card and a selection of passport photographs behind.

The restaurant claims they eventually managed to reach the culprit on her mobile phone and even offered to let her settle the bill up, but she just hit them with a torrent of abuse, which left them no option other than to get the police involved.

In a social media post, Ziggy's wrote: "Watch out for this pair of rockets, straight out of Viz!

The post continued: "She was met by a Deliveroo driver driving the right way, he politely tried to make her aware of this however, she preferred to get out her car and have a screaming match with him.

"Luckily the Deliveroo driver took a picture of the licence plate which has been passed on to the police along with her name and contact number (thank you track and trace).
