By Wes Wade | (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Police are looking for a man who robbed the Subway on Old Knoxville Highway Tuesday evening, fleeing with a tuna sub and undisclosed amount of cash.
Alcoa Police Officer Roger Rex said a man entered the store, located at 2919 Old Knoxville Highway, Maryville, at around 8:28 p.m. and ordered a tuna sub. The man then paid for the sandwich before handing the employee a note indicating he had a gun.
The suspect then retrieved the money he used to pay for the sandwich along with an undisclosed amount of cash from the store, Rex said. The man fled in a red SUV which was last seen heading out of the shopping center parking lot in the direction of Food Lion.
Police said although the man indicated he had a firearm, he never displayed a weapon during the robbery.
The suspect is described as a white male with brown hair and glasses. He is about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and in his late 20s or early 30s.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Alcoa Police Detective Kris Sanders at 865-380-4954.
