Police say a Texas family that ate at a Waffle House in North Carolina on Monday before robbing it has been captured.

Wednesday, the Hillsborough police stated that the suspects had been apprehended with assistance from the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office and the United States Marshals Service.

Police identified the suspects as Tamiko Lashun Jones, Tony Eugene Lemon, and Diamond Walton, all of Marshall, Texas, and Longview, Texas, respectively. Each of them is charged with armed robbery, conspiracy to conduct armed robbery, and deceiving an innkeeper.

A few days before to Monday’s heist, the defendants committed identical offenses in Minden, Louisiana. According to police, they might face more charges.

The suspects entered the Waffle House in Shelby, North Carolina for a meal before conducting the robbery, according to the police.

Police said that after a quick dinner, Lemon produced a firearm and started demanding money from the restaurant staff before escaping to a nearby local gas station.

The suspects departed in two different vehicles: a burgundy Ford F-150 pickup with Texas license plates and a newer model silver Ford Fusion sedan with Texas license plates.
