Two men were arrested after trying to pay for lunch at a Modesto restaurant with a stolen one thousand dollar bill. 20 year old Ryan Gaines and 21 year old Ruben Ruby finished lunch at the Early Dawn Restaurant.
The stunned restaurant manager called a local coin shop where the money had been stolen recently, then he called the police. Investigators verified that the money was stolen and the two suspects were booked. Gaines was charged with first degree burglary and defrauding an innkeeper. Ruby was arrested on drug charges.
