Newark – On December 22, 2017 at 7:58 p.m. officers responded to TGIFridays, 650 S. College Avenue, for a report of theft of services that had just occurred, according to Lt. Fred Nelson.

Nelson said an employee reported that the suspect, later identified as Seth Baugher, 37, of Rising Sun, incurred a $96.05 bar tab and left the business without paying.
