Suspect sought in Kentuckiana Subway robberies

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police in New Albany are searching for a man accused of robbing several Subway sandwich shops in Louisville and southern Indiana.

The first 2 robberies happened on November 2nd, at two Subway stores in Louisville.

One took place on Bardstown Road near Seatonville Road in the Fern Creek area.

The other happened at a Subway on Bardstown Road in Glenmary.

Then, on November 9th, a New Albany Subway located on State Street was hit.

It's happening shortly after the stores open.

Investigators say the suspect in that robbery matches the description given to police in multiple Subway robberies in southern Indiana and Louisville. 

They say the man walks into the Subway stores, acting like a normal customer.

Authorities say he's wearing a light blue surgical mask and a patch over his left eye, which appears to be from an injury or surgery.

He orders a ham sandwich- and then pulls out a gun once employees finish making the sandwich.

"Didn't seem suspicious, up until the point when the transaction for money was to be exchanged and that's when he pulled the firearm out and demanded cash," says Captain Ken Fudge, with New Albany Police.

"Yeah, a lot of employees are scared now to close by themselves because of this, and open by themselves as well, are scared too," says Subway employee Josh Weible.

Police say it's hard to make out what the suspect looks like, but in surveillance video they get a quick glimpse of what he's wearing.

"He was wearing a blue cover-all type outfit with a hoodie on. He had a black baseball cap that had the Bacardi emblem on it," says Captain Ken Fudge.

They're asking people to now keep an eye out.

They believe the suspect is hitting Subway stores near interstates, so that it's easy to get away quickly with the food and money.

Anyone with information should give Louisville Metro Police or New Albany Police a call.
