NORCROSS, Ga. Police are searching for a man who used a pitchfork to rob a Waffle House restaurant northeast of Atlanta.
Norcross police say 50-year-old Jeffery Wooten entered the diner in Norcross, Georgia, Thursday night and forced people toward a back room. He then grabbed the cash register.
WSB-TV reports that the suspect dropped the pitchfork while carrying that cash register back to his truck.
Two restaurant workers followed the robber outside, grabbed the abandoned pitchfork and used it to smash a window on the robber's truck as he escaped, possibly injuring the suspect.

Not a ping.
A pitchfork is a rather ingenious method to get away with the most WAFFLES!!!
Robbed a Waffle House?
Get a rope.
i am surprised that no one threw a chair or a pot of coffee on him.
Shades of Sumter, S.C.
APB says he is “pronged and dangerous”
The devil made him do it.
Time to ban pitchforks. Or at least assult pitchforks.
"I have an alibi."
FReepmail me or KoRn to get on or off the Waffle House Ping List.
I got one!
HAHAHA! Got me!
Just in case.
I’m guessing that he ran out of hay to bail —
Police suspect alcohol was involved. They are scouring local trailer parks.
The story doesn’t say how he was identified. Probably license plate, I guess.
Beat me to it! I was just about to show that a three tined pitchfork was OK but a manure fork with many tines was really an ASSAULT FORK and should be banned!
He’s a joker,
He’s a smoker,
He’s a midnight poker
Well, that escalated quickly.
I’m surprised no one shot him. Must not have been very late.
or just straight up whooped his ass for fun. This is waffle house!
Wait. A Waffle House in Georgia full of people and nobody had a Gun? Isn’t that against Natural Law or something?
Didn’t Georgia just pass Constitutional Carry?
They’re getting creative, last week it was robbery by potato.
This guy is needed in Washington DC, along with some tar and feathers.
That's not narrowing it down much.
For example, if they simply mean "near Greater Atlanta Christian School" in Norcross, that limits it to the one across the street, and the one across I-85 near Lowe's. Norcross locations on Buford Highway, Peachtree Industrial, Jimmy Carter (2), Brook Hollow . . .
He’s in Miller’s Cave.
Using a big fork for a high stack
Pitchforks should be limited to three tines. No one needs a four tine high capacity pitchfork.
Maybe someone told him to head over to the White House with pitchforks and he thought they said Waffle House.
“Didnt Georgia just pass Constitutional Carry?”
No but there is a lot of concealed carry. I’m surprised somebody didn’t draw down on him.
Apparently this thing is new in the last 6 months or so.
To arrange for the truck to come to you, send mail to: Atl.email@example.com
I want the truck to come to me, every morning, free.
How much did it cost you? Was there a minimum? Do they require a certain number of attendees?
That truck is almost as big as the restaurants.
I would miss the waitresses standing 5 feet from the cook and yelling out the order.
The three prong is more deadly.
You can tell we’ve all been to Waffle House.
And no, Kickass Conservative, our legislators didn’t pass Constitutional carry, but they did open up the places where licensed concealed carry is allowed quite a bit, removing a number of previously restricted locations.
Also, see my previous with the pic.
In my several travels through NC, VA and SC, I saw one intersection with one exit east and another west bound. Waffle Houses on each side of the Interstate.
I didn’t arrange it, so don’t know. Send them mail and ask, they’re a friendly bunch. I know a couple people who work there, one at the main corporate offices, and another guy who is ops manager for about a 60-location franchisee in NE GA.
It’s pretty close to the size of the actual kitchen in a Waffle House, no doubt.
They had a waitress standing outside the truck, working the line of even attendees, writing orders on her pad, then passing them into the short order cook.
Just wondering....I thought it might be nice to say have it pull up outside my daughter’s house if me and wife were there overnight and then have everybody wake up to it outside and they could order what they want. I know if would be expensive, but I’m wondering “how expensive.”
In my experience, orders MUST be yelled at the cook, but I’d try it anyway.
Once upon a time, the Clairmont Road and I-85 intersection in the NE Atlanta area had Waffle Houses at 3 of the 4 quadrants. I think they’re down to two now.
It’s likely there are intersections with 3 out there now.
Wow, I think my siting was in NC.
Used to frequent the one in Durham by I-40, across the Interstate from the Hampton Inn.
I worked with a guy doing some consulting. We were working with DOC in NC. One Monday night he drove around for two hours trying to find a “good” restaurant. Everything had closed early. Wound up back at the Waffle House across from the motel. Could have had two more hours of sleep.
I’ll have a pecan waffle and an orange juice. Thanx.
The story doesnt say how he was identified. Probably license plate, I guess

Don’t know how ‘big’ Norcross may be but my experience in Waffle Houses in ‘smaller communities’ is that after 1 AM or so a lone ‘stranger’ will get the local LEO to ‘stop by for a cup of coffee’.
I ‘drew out’ the entire night shift in a town or two in Terrell County GA because I was wearing a ball cap with “USS Terrell County - LST 1157” on it.
After being ‘interviewed’, someone picked up the tab for my breakfast - However the SYT made out as she got my payment in tip.
Waffle House has more locations than IHOP, and the area where Waffle Houses are more popular than IHOP is the new Maxon-Dixon line.
The Rogers family had/has a successful formula.
