The Subway at 428 E. Jefferson Boulevard was robbed at gunpoint on February 26, 2015 at approximately 9:45 p.m. During the offense, the suspects took property from patrons of the Subway as well as cash from the restaurant. Three suspects fled the location in a white vehicle.
At 11:15 p.m., a suspicious vehicle call was made to 911 at the Zoo with the same description of the suspect vehicle in the Subway robbery. Officers from both the South Central Division and the Southwest Division responded to the area to see if they could locate the vehicle.
At 12:15 a.m., a South Central Deployment Officer, who was working in a plain-clothes capacity observed a vehicle matching the suspect vehicle description leaving an apartment complex near the 600 block of North Lancaster. The officer followed the vehicle to the 7-11 at 302 N. Marsalis, where a Southwest Deployment officer, also working in plain clothes, took over observation of the vehicle. Uniformed patrol officers from South Central and Southwest arrived shortly thereafter and made contact with the two occupants of the vehicle.
After being interviewed by detectives, both suspects confessed to the Subway robbery. At this time, the names of the suspects are not going to be released due to pending photo line-ups.
Great work was done by all those involved!
