DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Police have arrested a woman who reportedly robbed a Waffle House, posing as an auditor.

Tips from Crimestoppers helped Warren County Sheriff's identify Mindy L. Messina, 37, as the person suspected in this robbery.

Messina entered the Waffle House at 9725 Mason Montgomery Road in Deerfield Township, early Monday morning around 2:45 a.m.

According to authorities, Messina said she was a corporate 'auditor' for the Waffle House restaurant and was there to inspect.

She stayed for about 45 minutes. Police say she eventually asked an employee to print out the evening sales receipts and open the cash register. While the employee was distracted, she took money out of the cash register and fled the store.

Detectives interviewed Messina and she confessed to taking the money from Waffle House. During the investigation it was discovered that Messina had committed a similar offense in Elsmere, Kentucky at a convenience store.

Elsmere officers came to the Warren County Sheriff's Office and interviewed Messina. Messina confessed to their offense as well.

Mindy L. Messina was charged with Theft and booked into the Warren County Jail. Charges are pending in the Elsmere Kentucky incident.
