Man Accused Of Robbing Georgia Waffle House With Pitchfork

NORCROSS , Ga. (UPI) — A warrant charging a Georgia man with armed robbery has been issued after a 50-year-old suspect allegedly used a pitchfork to rob a Waffle House in Norcross.

Police are looking for Jeffery Wooten after he allegedly used the farm tool to herd employees and customers into the back room of the Waffle House so he could grab the cash register.

“When he realized he couldn’t get the cash register open, he took the whole cash register and exited the store with his pitchfork,” Norcross Police Chief Warren Summers told WSB-TV.

While he was carrying the register, Wooten dropped the pitchfork and a woman picked up the tool and began hitting him with it. “It appears the suspect sustained some injuries from this incident,” Summers said.

The pitchfork was also used to smash a window on Wooten’s truck while he made his escape.

“Once he didn’t have a pitchfork, he wasn’t as brazen. I know that,” Summers said. “It wouldn’t be an offensive weapon in your garden, but it was in a Waffle House.”
