Woman posing as Waffle House manager steals cash

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA - Atlanta police are searching for a woman dressed in a Waffle House uniform who walked into a restaurant pretending to be an area manager -- and left with about $100 in cash from the register.

The heist happened shortly after 6 a.m. Wednesday at one of the chain's 24-hour diners on Memorial Drive, on the city's southeast side.

Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said the suspect began acting as an area manager and conducted an inspection of the restroom area, then continued her routine as real area managers do.

Eventually she turned the cash register key and took out about $100.

Police say the woman was seen leaving the store in a Mercury Mountaineer SUV with Georgia tags and a male driver behind the wheel.
