Subway robber orders sandwich and cookies before producing gun, demanding cash

Cops in Oakland Township, Mich., are seeking the public’s help in tracking down an armed robber with a taste for Subway sandwiches.

Police say the suspect, wearing construction gear as well as a dust mask covering part of his face, walked into a Subway restaurant on Sunday evening posing as a customer, and proceeded to order a sandwich, WDIV reported.

Footage released by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department shows the robber requesting what appears to be a side of mayonnaise or dressing, as well as two cookies, which the on-duty employee bags and places on the counter.
