2 arrested on suspicion of stealing from Azteca


— Two men were arrested Friday evening at Azteca Taqueria, 116 Ninth St., on suspicion of stealing about $100 from a tip jar and beer from the restaurant earlier in the week, Steamboat Springs Police Department Sgt. Gerard Geis said.

A physical altercation took place Friday after the men returned to Azteca and restaurant employees recognized them from the earlier incident.

Restaurant employees and Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue Chief Ron Lindroth, who was off duty in the area, helped detain the men before police arrived, Geis said. No one was injured, he said.

Good day on the tip jar.....tempted those idiots. I'da beat those dudes too. I'm picturing the citizen detainment. Musta been spicy. Hot sauce! Hope to see the mug shots soon.

Their salsa is awesome but I can't even imagine what an eye full of their mango-habanero salsa would feel like, but I sure hope those two know what it feels like. Also, I can't even imagine the gumption those two must have mustered to have been able to ponder a scheme like that as something that could have been truly beneficial for them, especially in such close proximity to a police station. Not to be redundant but, again, you idiots. Almost makes me wish it was on a night when I was hungry for an Azteca chimichanga. What a pleasure it would have been to utilize the wrestling/submission/pressure point training I've gone through to twist those punks into pain-pretzels. Heck, might have even got me a few extra punches on the ol' frequent feeder card. Oh well.

Yeah, that's classy. Steal tips from the workers/servers. These thieves deserve the "Scum of The Earth" trademark in the background when their mug shots are taken.
