KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A man wanted in Kansas and Oklahoma is likely wishing he had decided to eat in this weekend.

Virgil Tillman was eating at a restaurant on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City Sunday when a U.S. Marshal who had been looking for him since February decided to go to the same restaurant.

Tillman is wanted in Kansas on firearms, theft and drug charges. Oklahoma officials say he failed to appear in court on drug and illegal weapons charges.

Matt Cahill, acting deputy U.S. Marshal in Kansas, says the deputy was off-duty when he spotted Tillman at the restaurant. He waited outside with Kansas City police and arrested Tillman as he left.

The deputy then went into the restaurant and had his meal.
