BRIEF: Subway robbery suspect nabbed
FARMINGTON, Mar 09, 2013 (Foster's Daily Democrat - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
The man police believe robbed the downtown Subway restaurant earlier this week has been arrested.
At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Farmington Police charged 23-year-old Jeffrey Smith, who they say is homeless, in connection with his alleged theft of an undisclosed amount of cash from the fast food restaurant at 457 Main St. around 12:30 p.m. on Thursday.
No weapon was shown during the incident and there were no injuries.
The cash has not yet been recovered, according to Police Chief Kevin Willey.
Willey said after posting surveillance photos of the suspect, Community Corrections immediately identified the suspect as Smith.
"Then my wife, who works in Rochester, actually noticed the truck that was pictured," Willey said. She had seen it pass by earlier Friday.
"She called me and we were able to stop the vehicle, speak with the driver of the truck," and based upon the information received, they were able to issue an arrest warrant for the robbery.
Smith was arrested at a relative's residence in Rochester and was transported to Farmington for processing.
