CCSO

Images taken from the Waffle House security camera show a black male wearing plaid pants and a black female who appears to be pregnant. They allegedly drove the white, four-door sedan used to leave the restaurant.

Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta are now offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information regarding a recent armed robbery of a local Waffle House.

Just after 6 a.m. last Saturday, Coweta 911 received a call advising a black male wearing a dark jacket with a hood covering his head and plaid pants entered the Waffle House at 4410 Hwy. 154, and displayed a handgun. 

The man allegedly took an unknown amount of money and left on foot, according to Sheriff Mike Yeager with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

The offender is believed to have been working in concert with a black female who appeared to be pregnant and who was driving a white, four-door sedan.

A witness came forward advising they saw the suspect walking west on Hwy. 154 where he reportedly got into a waiting vehicle, according to Yeager. 

The vehicle was described as possibly a Nissan or Toyota. The witness attempted to follow the vehicle, but allegedly lost sight around Hwy. 29 North and Weldon Road.

Investigators believe the suspects may have local connections based on their direction of travel.

Any information on the case can be submitted anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online at www.crimestoppersatlanta.org or tips can be submitted using the Crimestoppers app, now available for iPhone and Android smartphones.

Persons do not have to give their name or any identifying information to be eligible for the reward.

Information can also be relayed directly to Lt. Jason Fetner at the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office at 678-423-6711.
