Dining and dashing is nothing new, but a New Mexico woman committed her food crime in the name of the Lord.
According to police 30-year-old Delila Hernandez ordered food from a Sonic and told a server, “This one’s on God,” before fleeing.
She was arrested Monday in a felony robbery case.
The server told her, “That’s not how this works,” and tried to keep the food from her, but the woman allegedly threatened him and came toward him for the meal.
Court documents state the server, in fear of getting harmed, gave the woman the meal she’d ordered and ran back into the restaurant where he called police.
Police later found the woman — Delila Hernandez — in a park eating the meal she’d allegedly stolen.
Court documents state Hernandez told officers she knew what she’d done was wrong, and even hesitated to eat the meal because she knew it was wrong, but decided to eat it because she was “starving.”
Hernandez, 30, was arrested and charged with a felony robbery. However, the charge may be reduced.
Roxanne Garcia-McElmell, public information officer for the Third District District Attorney’s Office, said Hernandez will most likely end up charged with a petty misdemeanor of under $250, and be made to pay back the restaurant, and possibly fined a small amount, or the charges may be dropped altogether.
It really is a heartbreaking story, but the server was right — that’s not how this works. If that’s the case, we’re telling our landlord ‘this one’s on God’ when it’s time for rent next month.
