By Kevin Murphy Kansas City, Missouri (Reuters) - Former fugitive Virgil Tillman will have plenty of time to contemplate his unfortunate choice of restaurants as he sits in jail. Wanted on weapons and drugs charges by three counties in two states, Tillman was spotted at a pricey restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri, by a fellow diner - an off-duty deputy U.S. marshal who had been pursuing him for two months, said acting chief deputy U.S. marshal for Kansas, Matt Cahill, on Thursday. The marshal, who just happened to pick the same place to have dinner on Sunday night, recognized Tillman from photos, Cahill said. He also recognized Tillman's dining companion, a woman he had interviewed about the fugitive who denied knowing his whereabouts, Cahill said.

A crackdown on theft by luggage handlers at Los Angeles International Airport has netted six arrests along with jewelry, electronics and clothing stolen from passengers' baggage, law enforcement officials said on Thursday. The arrests came after airport police and the Los Angeles Police Department served 25 search warrants late on Wednesday as part of an investigation focused on current and former employees of companies hired by airlines to handle luggage, police said. "It's a disappointment, but a fact of life, that sometimes a few people will succumb to the temptations at LAX," Los Angeles Airport Police Chief Patrick Gannon said in a statement. Of the six people arrested, four were taken into custody on suspicion of receiving stolen property and two were held on outstanding warrants, said Los Angeles Airport Police spokeswoman Sergeant Belinda Nettles.

By Jim Forsyth SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Mexican restaurants in the United States are being squeezed by a sudden jump in the price of limes, an essential ingredient, which has led managers in places like San Antonio that are a hotbed for the cuisine to alter recipes. "Mexico received some heavy rains that destroyed a large amount of the lime crop, so with limited supplies we are seeing lime prices skyrocket," Bryan Black, director of communications for the Texas Department of Agriculture, said on Thursday. John Berry, who runs La Fonda, a prominent Mexican restaurant in San Antonio, said on Thursday the price he pays for a case of limes has jumped to nearly $100 from $14 last year. Serving a margarita without a lime garnish is burning at the heart of Louis Barrios, who runs the family-owned Mexican restaurant chain "Los Barrios." But he's doing without.
