Woman in alleged dine-and-dash trio returns for purse, charged with fraud

  • Print

BRANDON -- At least one of a trio of women who ran out on their restaurant bill will be paying a little extra after she left her purse behind.

Police say the three women had racked up a bill of more than $140 for food and alcohol Sunday night, at a restaurant in the 1100-block of 18th Street, before ducking out of the restaurant and fleeing.

Officers were called at about half-past midnight, and were still there when one of the women returned to the scene of the crime: She had forgotten her purse.

A 28-year-old Red Deer, Alta., woman was arrested and held overnight at the Brandon Correctional Centre. She's was to appear in court later Monday, where she'll face fraud charges.
