A woman was banned from a Roseburg Denny's for life after police say she and a male walked out of the diner Thursday morning without paying for their meal.

At approximately 4:40 a.m., Megan Rita Parshall, 33, and Donald Michael Jay, 71, walked into the Denny's on West Harvard Avenue and sat down for a meal.

Jay told Parshall he would pay for the meal, but when the bill came, both Jay and Parshall were unable to come up with the $20.36 tab ā€” so they both walked out, according to a police report.

Officers from the Roseburg Police Department later located both Jay and Parshall and cited Jay with third-degree theft. Parshall was trespassed from the diner for life, according to the police report.
