Police: Woman Posing as Area Manager Steals Cash from SE Atlanta Waffle House

Mike Morris, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, February 26, 2014

A woman posed as an area manager for Waffle House to steal money from the cash register of one of the chain’s 24-hour diners in southeast Atlanta early Wednesday, police said.


Jamonte Robinson, the real manager of the Waffle House at 2914 Memorial Dr., told police that just after 6 a.m., a woman dressed in a company uniform “entered the business and began acting as an area manager,” Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said.

After going to the restroom area, “where she conducted an inspection of the area,” the suspect “continued the routine as all other area managers do,” Jones said Robinson told police.

“When she got to the cash register, she turned the register key and took out about $100 in cash,” Jones said. {snip}

Jones said that after taking the cash from the register–and about four minutes after first entering the restaurant–the woman walked out, got into a Mercury Mountaineer sport utility vehicle with Georgia tag PCS 4030, and was driven away by a male suspect.

The woman is 5 feet, 6 inches tall, in her mid 20s and has red hair, police said. At the time, she was wearing a black Waffle House visor, a blue shirt with a black tie and a pair of black slacks.
