Customers robbed of nearly $40,000 in jewelry and phones at Buckhead Waffle House (ATLANTA)
AJC ^ | 09/30/2013 | Mike Morris

Posted on 09/30/2013 1:58:28 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

No injuries were reported Monday in the predawn armed robbery of several customers at a Buckhead Waffle House.

The robbery happened just after 6:30 a.m. at the 24-hour diner on Piedmont Road north of Pharr Road.

Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said three men from Philadelphia were robbed of nearly $40,000 in jewelry and iPhones.

~SNIP~

Jones said the suspects took a $6,000 gold chain and medallion and a diamond-covered Rolex watch valued at $20,000 from Vincent Lamar “Cash Out” Robinson, a Rolex Submariner watch valued at $12,000 and a $500 iPhone from Raheem Jefferson and an iPhone 5 valued at $500 from Derrick Johnson.

The suspects then left the restaurant and fled on foot. Police have not released a detailed description of the robbers.

The “suspects” knew these bling-covered out-of-towners were there with plenty of portable wealth.

I wonder if perhaps these two fine upstanding citizens owed someone some money?

Where they partying beforehand? That might explain it. Early breakfast is common among partiers.

I was going to ask the same question. Unless I need to, I rarely carry my wallet and I only carry as much cash as I think I will need.

I suspect the "suspects" followed them from the Room Service Lounge.

Could be. There are a lot of nightclubs and striptese clubs in that area.

In NYC, as a youth, I went to the Silver Star. Eastside in the 60s. I never liked breakfast at that hour but you go where the crowd goes.

GMTA. That was the first thought that came to mind for me. Just a little too convenient.

If it’s bean and cheese tacos, it’s more like a really late supper. If it’s bacon and egg tacos, that’s breakfast!

They probably felt safe, given that it was located in a majority white area. Note that the help is pretty much all white.

I was once into it, too. But I always locked my Rolex and my $12,000 gold chain in the trunk before going in. Wasn't worried so much about their being stolen -- was worried I'd spill maple syrup on 'em.

They sat at a back table near the restrooms. No one else was robbed. Yeah, right. A little to convenient, huh.

I’ve never been to a Waffle House. Not that I don’t like waffles and all, but it just never happened. The one nearest us, on the U.S. Highway, is a crime scene fairly often.

I was there, too. They took my $300K Rolls Royce. That's my story and I'm sticking to it, in case my insurance company asks.
