UPDATE: Second dine and dash suspect identified

Editor’s Note: This story is an update to a story ABD brought you about a dine-and-dash incident that occurred at Taqueria El Rey – a local Mexican restaurant – on Tuesday, Jan. 18. Two female diners left the restaurant without paying their $55 bill, even after a video posted on Facebook showed they were chased to the parking lot by an employee.

ABD has learned the identity of the second suspect in the Columbia County dine-and-dash case.

According to Maj. Steve Morris with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect’s name is Tatiana Bailey (see photo above story). Morris says she is expected to turn herself in for the alleged crime. Like her dining companion, Chondrea Mayfield, 27, of Grovetown, Bailey will be charged with misdemeanor theft of services – a crime that carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a fine of $1,000. “Whether the amount is $5 or $55, the sheriff’s office will follow up,” he states. “If you have a few drinks and a nice meal, one way or another, you will pay.” A camera in the restaurant helped police identify the second suspect, but they had a hard time hearing the audio.

According to The Jail Report’s page,, Mayfield posted bond of $1,100. Ramiro Galvan – owner of Taqueria El Rey – posted an update to the restaurant’s Facebook page on Friday, Jan. 21 saying he has met with her, and she apologized for her actions. “By our conversation, she’s not a bad person,” Galvan wrote. “She understood what she did and is willing to accept her punishment for it.”
