A customer celebrated Cinco de Mayo this year by ripping off a Mexican Restaurant in Rocky Mount.

Police are still looking for a customer who ran up a bill May 5 at San Jose Tacos & Tequila on North Wesleyan Boulevard — then skipped out on the check. The customer ordered a taco, three alcoholic beverages and two consumable foodstuffs totaling $44.43. The dine-and-dash occurred between 9 and 9:45 p.m. The loss wasn't discovered until the restaurant closed later that night, according to the incident report.

Anyone with information about any crime in the area is asked to contact Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111 or crimestoppers@rockymountnc.gov.
