Texas Idiot Robs IHOP, Eats At Different IHOP, Gets Arrested

Illustration for article titled Texas Idiot Robs IHOP, Eats At Different IHOP, Gets Arrested

This Texas man must have thought he designed the perfect crime: Rob a restaurant and then proceed immediately to a different location of the same restaurant two miles away so you can eat breakfast. THEY'LL NEVER THINK TO LOOK FOR YOU THERE, RIGHT? Wrong, apparently.


TV station KENS 5 reports that a man in my lovely hometown of San Antonio was arrested in connection with the robbery of an IHOP restaurant this morning after police caught him eating at another IHOP down the street just an hour after the alleged crime took place.

The man, whose name was not released, is accused of robbing an IHOP with a weapon around 2 a.m. and absconding with $350 in cash in his gold Buick LeSabre. But then police found the man's car about an hour later in the parking lot of a different IHOP about two-and-a-half miles away while he ate inside.

Police said an employee from the IHOP [where the robbery took place] thought the man eating looked like the robber; however, the suspect was wearing different clothes from what witnesses had described.


Well, at least he was smart enough to maybe change his clothes.

But why go to the same restaurant, and why one so close to the robbery? He couldn't have gone to Denny's or Waffle House or Las Palapas or literally anywhere else? Or, I dunno, maybe go home and lay low for a while because you just committed a felony?

Dude must have really wanted a Rooty Tooty Fresh 'N Fruity.

The biggest crime here is that there are two IHOPs less than 3 miles away from each other. WHY CAN'T I HAVE THAT?!

If I want IHOP in northeast PA I have to drive to Jersey. And if I'm in Jersey, I might as well go to a diner instead.
