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.


[Editor’s Note: The suspect later returned to the Waffle House to give back the money. She was then arrested. Her mug shot is below.]

    The only way this scam succeeded is if the employees didn’t know who the regional manager was and what he or she looked like. Something tells me these employees or their shift manager weren’t exactly the hottest burner on the grill.

    Is this Waffle House in a black part of Atlanta?

    • I cross checked the address provided for this WH with the NYT Census Explorer. The census tract it’s in is 67% black 29% white, but south of there it’s rock solid Bell Curve City, 90%+ black census tracts.

      IOW, those are the kinds of neighborhoods where the denizens “represent” and “keep it real,” i.e. keeping people in your line of work very busy.

      • antiquesunlight

        Yes. I grew up in that general area. It’s Africa.

    • phorning

      My guess is most of the employees have an attitude of the Waffle House doesn’t pay me enough to care. They can’t make the connection between the theft and how it could jeopardize their employment.

    • antiquesunlight

      Memorial Drive runs through the black part of Decatur, GA. I used to live a bit south of it. I’m sure that’s where this was.

      • Brian

        Memorial and Candler — yes, Bell Curve City.

    • dukem1

      Atlanta has a white part?

      • antiquesunlight

        I got a laugh out of that.

      • Brian

        When referring to the metro area, yes. There are places in the actual city limits that are mostly white too– it’s a neighborhood-by-neighborhood situation.

    • bilderbuster

      C’mon Puggg?
      The name of the real manager of the Awful House is Jamonte Robinson.
      For not noticing that easy giveaway you have to keep celebrating Black History for an extra month.

    • 2eRep

      Chicken and waffles.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Blacks have strange taste. Chicken with Waffles or Fried Fish with spaghetti.

        • Cid Campeador

          Catfish Bolognese.

  • dd121

    Well, I at least admire her initiative.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Let me guess: the Waffle House sells “Chicken and Waffles”.

      • antiquesunlight

        They sell chicken and they sell waffles, but they don’t sell chicken and waffles. Waffle House is more of a white truck driver diner kind of place.

      • BonV.Vant

        Chihk’n n Waff-oows, da two foods groups, gnomeasaying

  • D.B. Cooper

    Oh come on! Where I live, this crime wouldn’t have made the news, compared to our usual shootings by the usual suspects.

    • Sloppo

      I think it’s news because the black suspect returned the money and didn’t hurt anyone. How often does something like that happen?

    • antiquesunlight

      Just a few days ago in Norcross, which is on the opposite side of Atlanta from where this happened, a black man beat up and robbed a 74-year-old man in a McDonald’s bathroom. The old man is in critical condition at the hospital. I can’t find out whether the victim was white, but I’d say it’s a safe bet.

      • evilsandmich

        Might be fifty/fifty. I’ve seen more than a few stories from the shadier parts of northeast Ohio where a couple yoofs have mugged a black ‘WWII vet’.

    • dukem1

      what makes it newsworthy is the fact that some type of thought and planning and effort went into it..The WH workers are lucky they didn’t get murdered for the $100.

  • Spartacus

    Wait a minute… She’s not Irish !

  • WR_the_realist

    If that’s red hair I’m a Hottentot.

    • Katherine McChesney

      It’s wiry black hair that has been ‘processed’ to the nines.

  • Who Me?

    She DOES NOT “have red hair”. She has dark hair with reddish highlights on top.

    • BonV.Vant

      she has dark wool wiFF reddish highlights

  • me

    I can tell the difference between a White woman and a Bantu, wannabe a White girl, drag queen….can you, journalist scum? Or you, police ‘officer’? Oh, yeah…the ‘press’ and the ‘police’ are working for the globalist/corporate/elitist scum.

    • sshadow

      I hadn’t seen this species before. What are they called? No, seriously.

  • So CAL Snowman

    All of that work for $100? If she put that much effort into getting a real job she would be making a lot more than that. These africans never cease to amaze me with their incredible stupidity and allergic reactions to an honest day’s work.

    • Tarczan

      That is so true. They will risk jail, work for hours, and destroy thousands of dollars of property to steal a few dollars of pipe or wire. Not to mention risking death by electrocution.

      In most of the crimes listed here on AmRen there seems to be no risk to reward analysis. That sounds so white, but who would risk a felony for seven dollars of copper? Answer: A darkie.

  • Tarczan

    So after the theft she reasoned that she might get caught because they copied her license plate, thus she returned and gave back the money. Problem solved, error fixed. This is the darkie thought process.

  • A Freespeechzone

    That just shows how LOW the bar is for an Area Manager at Waffle House.

  • The Bogeyman

    I bet the carpet does not match the drapes.

    • ShermanTMcCoy

      You owe me some eye bleach for that image.


    Is it just me, or do black women look like black men with stupid hair cuts? Well, at least she isn’t wearing the mandatory hair hat black women usually wear.

    • IstvanIN

      Black women are generally not “pretty”.


        Generally not “pretty” is a hell of an understatement.

      • Cid Campeador

        Gee. Ya think so? There are very few. Those who have some White ancestry tend to be more attractive.
        Harris Faulkner of FOX news, although she doesn’t appear to have any Caucasian features is very attractive.

        • IstvanIN

          Yeah, with professional lighting, make-up and a wig.

  • Puggg

    That means Waffle House is like White Castle here.

  • Truth Teller

    Maybe Waffle House has different managers of different levels coming in?

  • Truth Teller

    Maybe she is or was a waffle house area manager who just went outside her assigned area to pick up a little cash.

  • Brian

    That’s a woman?

  • Brian

    I once had a WH waiter with the nametag ‘Sal Monella’.

    • Katherine McChesney

      That had to be a joke.

      • Brian


      • texasoysterman

        Maybe not at a Waffle House.

  • Reverend Bacon

    Yes, but I think Barnum and Bailey stopped hiring “Bearded Ladies.” That is what you meant, no?

    • IstvanIN

      Bearded ladies were actually ladies. Or at least women.

  • Darrell O’Hara

    That’s absolutely tight. It’s got nothing to do with hair colour, she’s black and that’s all.

  • benvad

    She gave the money back?
