GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - He was confronted about a fake $20 bill while trying to pay for food he ordered, police say, that’s when he pulled a handgun, jumped over the counter, and robbed the place. But then, police say he came back.
It happened Oct. 5 at the Subway in the 4100 block of Steve Reynolds Blvd. near Norcross. Gwinnett County Police released video of the man who walked into the business, used the bathroom, and then came out to order food. Police say when it came time to pay, the employee notices something was funny with the money.
The video shows the man then pulling a gun and climbing over the counter, holding the employee at gunpoint. Police say the female employee, a gun pressed into her side, opened the cash register. The suspect grabbed a couple hundred dollars and then fled, according to police. But police say he came back later to get the fake $20 bill.
"He had one rubber glove and one hand without a glove and presumably concerned about fingerprints or maybe that we could trace it some other way, said Gwinnett County Police Sgt. Jake Smith.
The suspect was wearing all black, his shoes and backpack are considered by investigators to be distinctive. That’s why they say they released the surveillance video in hopes someone will recognize them and contact police.
