Waffle House robbery suspect arrested

October 6, 2004

Albany -- Albany police have caught the man who repeatedly robbed a Waffle House.

 These surveillance photos were taken during the last robbery on September 5th. Police say the man is 20-year old Cleveland Roberts.

He was an employee of the Waffle House on Westover Road and is believed to have driven across town on three different occasions to rob the Waffle House on East Oglethorpe.

After these photos were shown, television viewers phoned in tips that led Investigators to Roberts. Sgt. Kendra Wilson said "Once we did the search warrant on the house, the jacket and everything matched."

Investigators say Roberts has confessed to two of the armed robberies. They think he may have committed other robberies.
