  • Follow Crime & courts

A Waffle House on the 3400 block of Mike Padgett Highway was robbed at gunpoint around 12:30 a.m. Friday, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

The robber pointed a black handgun at the cashier and demanded money, which she gave him from the register. The gunman started to leave, then came back asking for the rest of the money; the employee said that’s all she had.

The robber, described as a black man, about 5-foot-8 and 160 pounds, with brown eyes, fled on foot toward Apple Valley Drive, the report states.

The description is at least a start doesn't that restaurant have video camera's?

Just check the probation

Just check the probation records for people who match the description and live in Apple Valley. I'm sure you can narrow down the suspects. Odds are that our local "catch and release" judges have "unpunished" him before. He was probably a little short of cash to make his payment to the court kickback contractor operated probation fund.

If he is ever caught then he should be sentenced to eat there 3 times a day for the rest of his life, which won't be long if he eats there 3 times a day.

If you make the robber play

If you make the robber play the jukebox I'll bet he wouldn't last an hour, especially with that first column containing all the "Waffle House" corporate songs.

You have to admit the Waffle

You have to admit the Waffle House is a happy place. The noise might make you or me crazy but the workers understand it and carry on.
I love it! (just not too often)
