Tulsa police arrested a man who they believe stole cash from the Waffle House off 71st Street and Mingo.

They say surveillance video shows the Andrew Deweese walk into the restaurant around 3:30 a.m. 

He sat down at the bar and ordered some eggs and hash browns. After he finished, he wrote a note on a napkin demanding money.

The man showed it to the two female workers, and they complied with the cash.

Police say the suspect was wearing a Broncos hat; he left in a dark-colored Ford Ranger, possibly a 1990s model. They say he was located and taken into custody near the scene.

No one was harmed during the robbery, but the employees were shaken up, according to police.

There were also four other customers inside the restaurant during the incident.

If you see this man or know of his whereabouts, call Tulsa Crime Stoppers at 918-596-2677.
