Ridgewood NJ, the Ridgewood police report that on January 1st, patrol units responded to a Godwin Avenue business on a report of a theft of services. Upon arrival patrol was advised a male and female actor fled from the restaurant without making payment for the services rendered. The amount of the theft was approximately $30. Patrol checked the area but could not locate the actors.

A dine and dash is a form of theft by fraud, in which a patron orders and consumes food and beverages from a restaurant or similar establishment with the intent not to pay. The act may involve the customer leaving the restaurant with the intent of evading payment, or, less commonly, of the patron eating the food and then stating that they do not have any money.

  1. Or just maybe the food sucks. It happens And the owner of the restaurant doesn’t wanna take care of you so see ya.

  2. so very true. I will never pay for food that is not fresh. Tell the manager to take it off the bill and of story. These food establishments need to learn to serve fresh food. It’s amazing what some of these delis in town are serving stale bread.

  3. Did they run into the ILLEGAL WALL when exiting the resturant?
