CLEVELAND – Two men have been charged in a case of “dining and dashing” from local restaurants.

Matthew Gareau and Scott Gareau are suspected of eating at area restaurants and then skipping out the checks. Their latest escape from payment came at Crop restaurant. But prior to that, another restaurant owner had seen them do the same thing. The images were shared on social media….and the owner of Crop was able to nab one of the men.

Both men have been charged with defrauding a restaurant, a misdemeanor. They are scheduled to appear in court in July.
