Pair of Subway shops robbed
By: Lauren Gibbs, The Placer Herald
A teen suspect robbed two Rocklin Subway shops over the holiday weekend. Rocklin Police are searching for a suspect believed to be connected to the two robberies. The first incident occurred at 8 p.m. Friday at a Subway shop on Sunset Boulevard, followed by the second incident at 2:45 p.m. Monday at a Subway located on Stanford Ranch Road. During Friday’s robbery, the suspect presented a demand note to the clerk. The suspect opened his jacket and displayed what appeared to be a handgun within his jacket. During Monday’s robbery, the suspect asked for a cookie and then pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money, according to Rocklin Police Lt. Terry Roide. No injuries were reported. The suspect fled both scenes with hundreds of dollars, Roide said. Roide said the suspect descriptions from both incidents match. “We believe it is the same suspect,” Roide said. The suspect is described as a white male between the ages of 16 and 18 years. He is believed to be approximately five-feet, four-inches tall and weigh between 130 and 140 pounds, dressed in a zip-up hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and mirrored sunglasses. Roide said in both robberies, the clerks were trained to react in the safest manner. “Property is nothing compared to life,” Roide said. “Do what they say, give them what they want, be a good witness afterward.” Anyone with information regarding the robberies, contact Rocklin Police at 625-5400.
