Police: Dine-and-dash 'sushi bandit' cited in eastern Idaho

November 11, 2017 - 1:10 PM

POCATELLO, Idaho - A man authorities say is the dine-and-dash "sushi bandit" has been cited in eastern Idaho for suspicion of petit theft.

The Bannock County Sheriff's Office tells KPVI-TV (http://bit.ly/2zy6bVv ) that a deputy took Trevor Bello into custody Friday after Bello tried to leave Chang's Garden restaurant in Pocatello without paying.

Officials say that last week someone dined and dashed from a $126 bill at Sumisu Sushi & Asian Fusion restaurant in Pocatello.

Officials say a waitress at Chang's thought Bello fit the sushi bandit description and alerted authorities.

Police say that when Bello exited Chang's through the back door without paying a deputy took him into custody.

Bello was taken to a holding cell but on Saturday wasn't at the Bannock County Jail.

It's not clear if he has an attorney.
