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