Update June 26

Tisbury Police were asking for the public’s help in tracking down a couple who allegedly stole more than $200 worth of food from Mikado, an Asian restaurant on Main Street in Vineyard Haven.

The alleged theft took place Saturday at around 10:30 pm when the couple, who first sat down at a table ordering food and drink, then ordered takeout food, as well, Lt. Eerik Meisner said. They left without paying for the food they ate, he said. “They took their order and someone else’s, and ran out the door,” Lt. Meisner said.

On Tuesday, the Tisbury Police department wrote on its Facebook page that the couple was no longer being sought.

“We got called by Mikado,” Lt. Meisner said. “They said the couple had come in and settled the bill, and they didn’t want to pursue charges.”
