RIVERDALE — Two years after allegedly robbing a Chinese restaurant at gunpoint, a 500-pound man has been booked into the Clayton County Jail.

Riverdale Police Sgt. K. Stauffer said Kirby Viontez Gary was booked into the jail Wednesday following evaluations at Georgia Regional Hospital, according to the application for criminal arrest warrant.

The incident took place May 27, 2010, at the China Cafe located at 373 Georgia Highway 138, in Riverdale.

Gary, who is described as 5 feet, 6 inches tall and 500 pounds, walked up to the register asked for a menu then pointed a chrome handgun at the China Cafe cashier, and said, “Give me all the money in the register,” according to the arrest warrant.

The suspect allegedly stole $146 in cash from the restaurant and left.

The incident was recorded on the restaurant’s surveillance camera, according to police.

Gary received a $50,000 bond with special conditions including; banning him from the China Cafe; he has to wear a GPS ankle monitor prior to release from jail; he has a curfew of 7 p.m. until 7 a.m., unless he is attending school, church, work, doctor or attorney visit; and he cannot violate any laws while out on bond, according to the consent order for bond.

Gary remains in the Clayton County Jail at press time Thursday.
