Husband and Wife Indicted For Waffle House Heist

28 March 2014

ATHENS - A Clarke County grand jury indicted a husband and wife this week in connection with an armed robbery of an Athens Waffle House and its customers back in December.

Authorities say Shaunae Nicole Buck was driving the night her husband, Randall Shane Buck, entered the Waffle House on South Milledge Avenue and robbed cash from the restaurant and cell phones from customers.

The bandit took $250 from the register before he ripped the business phone from its cord and made off in an employee’s vehicle, according to police.

A chase ensued before authorities were able to apprehend the suspect.

The Bucks were each charged with six counts of armed robbery and aggravated assault, and Randall Buck was charged with motor vehicle theft and fleeing and attempting to elude a police officer.
