A restaurant that launched a vigilante online campaign to find the couple who reportedly disappeared without paying for an expensive meal has tracked them down after a Facebook appeal to find them went viral.
Mojo's Restaurant in Bunbury, Australia, posted a ‘wanted’ advert on their Facebook page after a young unnamed French couple allegedly ordered a three-course meal with lots of alcohol before going out for a ‘cigarette break’ and failing to return.
The situation was compared to scenes from the cult classic film Pulp Fiction after the couple left a wallet on the table with the words ‘bad motherf*****’ impressed on it.
"They made a very theatrical display of advising our staff that they were popping outside to partake in a cigarette and they would leave their wallets on the table," Mojos owner Noel Brunning told ABC.
"They did so, but wallet was empty and unfortunately carried a rather abusive message embossed on the underside, something I believe was from the movie Pulp Fiction."
Mr Brunning’s wanted post and stills of CCTV showing the couple was viewed thousands of times and the pair were located.
The restaurant said it will not be pressing charges against the couple because they had had “enough justice”.
“The farmer who employed them promptly sacked them and told them to rectify the situation,” it said on Thursday. “Which they have now done with some embarrassment.”Reuse content
