  Jasper Police are releasing a photo of a suspect in a robbery at the Waffle House (near Hwy. 108 intersection on Hwy. 515) in the early morning hours Saturday.

  Detective Matt Dawkins said there are some details that are still being sorted out, but the suspect is known to have gotten away with about $500 from the Waffle House. Dawkins said at this time they are only saying robbery, not armed robbery.

   Dawkins said the suspect is very distinctive looking with facial tattoos. They have been circulating the photo among law enforcement agencies hoping someone knows the identity.

   They are asking the public to call the Jasper Police at 706-692-9110 if they have any information on person shown. Anonymous tips are welcome. Leave message if no answer for detectives.

The suspect is described as a white male, heavyset and over 6’1.”

   The police are also asking for anyone with information on vehicles that might have been connected to the robbery between 12:30 a.m. and 1 a.m. at the Waffle House on Highway 515 south of Jasper.

   “We will definitely be following up some leads,” the detective said.

   The same Waffle House was robbed by an armed man on December 24, 2016.

   When asked if the robberies could be related, Dawkins said no way, “totally different.”

It was just a matter of time. Jasper's now and has been for a few years, just another typical city in the good old United States of Oh Heyoll Yeeeeeaaaahhhhh h. Drunks, druggies, texters, and utter fools driving on or roadways, thugs, punks, deadbeats, and common criminals running amuck all over the place. Nothing can be done, people. Next up: murder rate skyrockets..... What a country.
