Atlanta police: Fake Waffle House manager arrested

ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police say a woman in a Waffle House uniform accused of pretending to be a company manager and stealing about $100 later returned to the restaurant to give the cash back.

But officer Kim Jones tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ( http://bit.ly/1fO2wlj) that the suspect _ 35-year-old Katie Marie McCrary of Decatur _ was apprehended Wednesday when she returned to the business in the southeast part of the city.

DeKalb County Jail records show McCrary faces a theft charge. The jail records do not list an attorney for McCrary.

Jones says the suspect began acting as an area manager and conducted an inspection of the restroom area, then continued her routine as real area managers do before taking cash from the register.

Jones says investigators don't believe McCrary is or was a Waffle House employee.
