Tacos touted as tipster treat

From The Associated Press

BRIGHAM CITY, Utah — Crime-solving doesn’t get much spicier than this. The owner of a Mexican restaurant is offering 500 tacos for information that leads to the arrest of the person who stole about $3,000. ‘‘We’re offering a food reward because all the cash got taken,’’ said Joe Cottam, owner of Melina’s Fine Mexican Restaurant. Someone broke through a glass door and stole cash and checks that had been prepared for deposit, said Cottam, who discovered the theft April 24. With tacos priced at more than $2, the reward is worth about $1,200, he said.
