“A man accused of leaving an El Lago restaurant without paying his tab was arrested a short time later on a trespassing charge by the Lakeview Police Department.

According to a police report, an employee at Gabacho’s Mexican Restaurant in the 4400 block of NASA Parkway called police to report the theft.

When officers responded, they learned that the man was seen walking toward a vacant building on the other side of the road after leaving the restaurant.

Police checked the area and found an open door in the back of the building. An officer went inside and called out, “Marco.”

The man’s name was not Marco, detective Tim Dohr said. Instead, “the officer was trying to inject some humor into the situation.”

Police found the suspect after he responded, “Polo.”
