Armed robbers get away with cash from Subway in Shenandoah

Men caught on surveillance camera

SHENANDOAH, Texas – Three men entered a Subway restaurant armed with handguns, demanding money from the sandwich chain’s safe, police said Wednesday.

When the employee working the register told the robbers he didn’t have access to the safe, the men took the entire cash drawer from the register, according to a news release from the Shenandoah Police Department.

The robbery took place just after 8:45 p.m. Tuesday, at the Subway shop located at 19189 Interstate 45.

After stealing the money from the register -- police didn’t list the amount of cash taken -- the men ran from the restaurant and were seen getting into a late '90s or early 2000-model white Pontiac four-door car, officers said.

The car was missing the front emblem, police said.

The employee who was robbed was the only person inside the restaurant at the time of the incident. He wasn’t hurt, according to officers.

The robbers were described as being in their late teens or early 20s. One wore a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black tennis shoes. Another wore a blue hooded sweatshirt with a sleeveless black jacket, black pants and Converse shoes that were black and white.

The third robber had on a red hooded sweatshirt with white drawstrings, red shorts and tennis shoes.

Anyone with information on the crime or the identities of these men is asked to call police.
