Robberies strike Waffle Houses

August 24, 2010

Lawrence police are investigating a possible connection in two armed robberies at separate Waffle House restaurants in Indianapolis. A man armed with a handgun stole the cash register at the Waffle House at 7290 Pendleton Pike about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. Officers stopped a black Ford Taurus that may have been used as the getaway car, but did not find the man matching the robber’s description. Police wonder whether the crime is related to Monday’s robbery of a Waffle House near East 21st Street and Post Road.
