    There are many verbs not used in the present continuous: often they denote a state or perception or cognition.They don't denote an activity that is in progress or a transition or process.

     Here are some verbs not usually used in the continuous sense.

      suspect, contain, deserve,hear, guess, see, seem, smell, suppose, know, lack, love, need, perceive, prefer etc.

    Therefore "is suspecting" is to be turned into "suspects" .

    "....restaurant, and he suspects that the beans were bad."  That is normal in British English.
