Police: Waffle House robbed on Christmas Eve by man and pregnant woman

Posted: Updated:
Kinston Police tell 9 On Your Side the Waffle House on East New Bern Road was robbed just after 1 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Commander Tim Dilday says that Joshua Love and his pregnant girlfriend Amanda Baggie conspired to rob the Waffle House. The man and woman from Pollocksville walked into the restaurant and gave the employees a note that demanded cash.

Police then say the couple left the restaurant with an undisclosed amount of money and headed towards Jones County. An officer identified the vehicle from the description given by waffle house employees and attempted to pull the car over, but Love did not stop and began a pursuit. Jones County deputies finally stopped the car by using stop sticks.

Commander Dilday says Love already had several warrants out for his arrest, but now is charged with common law robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, and is also facing additional charges connected to the police chase in Jones County. He is being held in the Lenoir County Jail under a $131,000 bond.

Love’s pregnant girlfriend Amanda Baggie is also facing charges of common law robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. Dilday said the woman has not been arrested and is being treated at a medical facility. He couldn’t give any more information because of medical privacy laws.
