ATTEMPT TO ID: Trio Wanted for Dining, Dashing Without Paying
Public’s Help Sought to Identify Suspects in Restaurant Fraud
Three diners – two women and a man – are being sought after they have scammed three different east Volusia restaurants out of a night’s dinner, and the Sheriff’s Office wants the public’s help to identify them.
All three incidents occurred at Houligan’s restaurants in different cities in Volusia County; the most recent was Nov. 23 at 1725 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach. The trio entered the restaurant around 5:30 p.m. and ordered a meal that totaled $90.52. After the suspects finished eating, two went outside to smoke and the third went to the restroom then exited Houligan’s. A search of the parking lot found the three had walked out without paying for their meal.
The Sheriff’s Office is seeking information to help identify these individuals who are suspected in all three incidents.
The suspects are shown in still photos from surveillance video taken at the Ormond Beach Houligan’s, 1110 W. Granada Blvd., when that restaurant was victimized in October. In September, the same type of incident occurred at the Port Orange Houligans, 1396 Dunlawton Ave. Only the Daytona Beach restaurant has filed a police report with the Daytona Beach Police Department.
In each case, the suspects ordered the same food and drinks and walked out without paying.
Anyone with information about these suspects or any of these incidents is urged to call the Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number at (386) 248-1777.
Or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida at 1-888-277-8477 (TIPS) or online via the P3Tips mobile app. You could receive a cash reward for your information.
