Gun-free Waffle House location robbed twice in 3 weeks

The chain of late-night hash brown and egg joints has long held a “no guns” policy but that hasn’t stopped a Georgia location from being repeatedly robbed at gunpoint.

Headquartered in Norcross, Georgia, the breakfast chain has some 2,100 locations in 25 states, primarily in the South, but robbers have targeted a restaurant in the Newnan area twice in the last month.

As reported by The Newnan-Times Herald, the McCollum-Sharpsburg location in Coweta County was targeted by two armed men around 11:20 p.m. Sunday night. While no customers were in the cafe, Troy Foles with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office reported one suspect placed a gun in the cook’s back and demanded her wallet, while a server opened the cash register.

The robbery netted $367.
