The incident occurred on December 12, 2023, at the Waffle House situated in the 6500 block of Highway 85. According to Riverdale police Chief Todd Spivey, the unidentified woman entered the establishment, adopting the guise of a Waffle House employee.
Remarkably, she managed to blend in for approximately two hours, appearing as a regular staff member.
It was during this time that she was seen on CCTV accessing the register tablet, opening the cash register, and making away with an estimated $130.
The audacious thief’s actions went unnoticed until the following morning when management reported the robbery to the police.
Intriguingly, authorities discovered that another Waffle House in the area had experienced a series of thefts, suggesting a potential connection.
The Riverdale Police Department shared details of the incident on Facebook, along with a surveillance photo of the woman. They called on the community to assist in identifying her and urged anyone with information to contact Detective Mendoza at (770)-996-3382.
Despite efforts, as of December 22, 2023, the suspect remains at large, and her identity has not been disclosed by the police.
Authorities are encouraging residents to stay vigilant and report any sightings or relevant information that could aid in the apprehension of the elusive woman.
