Dine and dash incidents reported
A local restaurant has been hit with cheap diners who want their fare, but don't want to pay.
It's called "dine and dash," said Mt. Juliet Police spokesperson Tyler Chandler.
New restaurant Hani Sushi has had a few incidents.
"There has been recent events where people go in and order and eat and then dash out," said Chandler. "They don't pay and the restaurant is out."
At this time, no other restaurants have reported the crime. And, it is a crime.
"They will be held accountable," said Chandler.
He said skipping out on a $20 meal payment could end up costing over $1,000 when it is said and done.
Those who take this route will be put in jail, have to pay court costs and more.
Chandler said Mt. Juliet Police are showing more of a presence at the restaurant since the incidents.
