A dine-and-dash thief has been sentenced to 120 days of more free meals.
Parolee Patrick Higgins, 43, pleaded no contest Wednesday to one count of felony burglary in connection with a March 1 incident in which he devoured $70 worth of food at a San Carlos restaurant and left without paying, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
About 2 p.m. that day, the 6-foot, 250-pound Higgins reportedly fled out of the rear door of Sneakers Pub & Grill at 1163 San Carlos Ave. He was caught by police who were walking on a nearby street.
As part of a plea agreement, Higgins received 120 days in County Jail and three years of supervised probation, Wagstaffe said.
“He was also ordered to make restitution to Sneakers in the amount of $70.24,” Wagstaffe said.
