Suspect Breaks Into Yacht Club, Then Stiffs Nearby Restaurant
A suspect is in the Benton County jail after surveillance footage confirmed he was the suspect in a break in at the Clover Island Yacht Club.
This was after he was already in jail for allegedly pulling a dine and dash at the Cedar's Restaurant on the island!
Police say 22-year-old Casey Thompson was being sought Tuesday evening after restaurant workers said he didn't pay for his meal and left. He was later located by police walking along the path to the Cable Bridge.
Police ordered him to halt, he tried to run, but was swarmed by officers. Then another officer who was working the Yacht Club case recognized him as the suspect from surveillance pictures. So besides facing theft and obstruction for the restaurant incident, now Thompson is also being hit with Criminal Trespass for the break in.
Best part? He was served the second charges while he was in jail for the dine and dash.
