Suspected Robber’s Pancake Breakfast Interrupted

San Antonio recently interrupted a man's early morning breakfast at an International House of Pancakes to take him into custody on suspicion of robbery. The man is accused of robbing a different IHOP restaurant about an hour earlier. The robbery happened at about 2:00 in the morning at an IHOP on Southeast Military Drive. The two employees at the restaurant had no customers at the time and were alone when they say a man came in and demanded cash from one of the employees. The employee gave him $350 from the cash register. The witnesses say that the robber didn't seem to have a weapon and was described as being in his late 20s wearing a gold-colored hat. They said that he drove away with the cash in a gold Buick sedan. About an hour later, police saw a gold sedan parked in the lot of another IHOP restaurant on Hot Wells Boulevard just off of Interstate 37. One of the employees from the IHOP that had been robbed was called to the other location and observed a man inside the restaurant who was eating. The employee said that the man looked like the one who robbed the other IHOP but this man was wearing different clothes. Police went inside the restaurant and took the man into custody for questioning. Investigators searched the gold car in the lot, which reportedly belonged to the man that was taken into custody, but did not find any cash, clothing or other evidence linking the suspect with the earlier robbery. Reports did not state if the man was released or if further evidence resulted in a formal charge of robbery. Have you been unfairly arrested and accused of a crime?

Robbery charges are very serious and can result in serious fines, imprisonment and other penalties if prosecutors are successful in getting a conviction. It is considered a second degree felony in the state of Texas if someone is found guilty of using force or threats of force to take another's property. You could be facing up to 20 years behind bars and $10,000 in fines. The charges are upgraded to first degree felony if a weapon was used during the robbery which means the possibility of a 99-year sentence.
