Several late night breakfast patrons may forever be traumatized by the term ‘scattered, smothered & covered’ after being robbed at an Atlanta area Waffle House early this morning (September 30, 2013).

If you’re in Atlanta, there’s not a person within spitting distance of you right now who hasn’t partaken in the late night/early morning delicacies of Waffle House, so news of an armed robbery has shaken several to the core today.

No injuries were reported in the predawn incident, but several customers at a Buckhead Waffle House were robbed of their iPhones and at least $40,000 worth of jewelry!
According to the AJC, it happened just as a few flossy glossy party-goers had left an Atlanta area after-hours club.
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.
She said the victims, who had previously been at the Room Service Lounge, arrived at the Waffle House and sat in a booth at the back of the restaurant by the restrooms.
About five minutes later, the two suspects entered and sat down at the counter. A few minutes after that, the suspects got up and went to the booth where the victims were sitting. One sat down while the other stood at the end of the table, Jones said.
She said the suspect sitting down “produced a black semi-automatic handgun,” pressed it into the ribs of one of the victims, and said, “don’t move or say anything. I’ll shoot you right here,” and “give me your watch and gold chain.”
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.
Here’s the thing… high profile weekends traditionally bring out the criminals.
Thieves come out in droves when all y’all flock to party weekends like Atlanta’s annual BET Hip-Hop Awards and while I couldn’t imagine anything worse than gettin’ ‘GOT’ while you’re eating your fresh chicken melt, sh*t happens… especially if you’re in a fast food joint rockin’ thousands of dollars in bling with no security.
Just a thought. Welcome to Atlanta…
