Woman to pay double for dining, dashing

  • Print

BRANDON -- A woman who dined and dashed from a pub will pay double the bill in the end, thanks to a hefty fine.

She was one of three women who downed $160 worth of liquor and food and ran for it. But she was the only one caught when she returned to retrieve her forgotten purse.

Crown attorney Deidre Badcock said it wasn't exactly a crime of necessity.

"It's not her taking a sandwich because she's hungry and then coming back and saying I have no money for it," Badcock said as the dasher was sentenced on Monday.

Kyla Anne MacMillan entered a quick, same-day plea on Monday to fraudulently obtaining food.

Brandon police were called just after midnight on Monday by staff at Tavern United at the Canad Inns.

Three women had been eating and drinking at the bar. They ate wings and nachos and downed 23 shots plus a pitcher of beer.

The bill was $160.09 with taxes.
