Man arrested for alleged armed robbery at Moe’s

Welcome to . . . an armed robbery.

The friendly greeting at a DeKalb County Moe’s Southwest Grill restaurant was followed by a man with a gun demanding cash Thursday afternoon, according to police.

A man, whose name was not released, walked into the restaurant on Hugh Howell Road between 1 and 1:30, but apparently had no interest in a Home Wrecker burrito. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, he walked out of the restaurant, police said.

No shots were fired and no one was injured. It was not known if the gunman got away with free chips and salsa.

Officers were already in the area and spotted a man matching the suspect’s description walking down the street, Mekka Parish, spokeswoman for DeKalb police, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The suspect was arrested, she said.

Why mention cops arrested him based on the description and not give the description? I guess that means he really was a Monday.

If he’s already in custody, why do you need a description? Police did not release his name, so they aren’t going to describe him.
