Taco Bell Crime of the Week!

In this case, Taco Bell wasn't the scene of a crime but rather the arrest of a criminal by his victim, who will probably get charged for his vengeance. Confused? So was I when trying to figure out where in California is Roseville...

Patrons of a Roseville Taco Bell got a dinnertime demonstration courtesy of Dave Marinoble, owner and instructor of Marinoble's Martial Arts Center.

Marinoble entered the Taco Bell on Foothills Boulevard around 7 p.m.Thursday night and attacked 18-year-old Riley Lockett, a Marinoble's instructor, for allegedly stealing money from the Martial Arts Center's cashbox.

According to Roseville Police Sergeant Troy Bergstrom, Marinoble approached Lockett from behind while he was seated in the restaurant's dining room and placed him in a chokehold.

"He pulled him out of his seat and had (Lockett) on the floor where he put him in handcuffs and said he was under citizen's arrest," Bergstrom said.

Meanwhile, Bergstrom said patrons in the restaurant were yelling to call the police to which Marinoble replied, "We are the police."

An off-duty CHP officer was eating in the restaurant and called Roseville Police to come handle the situation.
