Armed Robber Pretends to Buy Cookies, Robs Subway: Cops

Miami-Dade Police are looking for an armed robber who pretended he wanted to buy cookies, and instead robbed a restaurant at gunpoint.

Investigators say the man walked into a Subway at 11506 Quail Roost Drive in Miami-Dade on February 7th. An employee was closing up shop and the suspect came in asking to buy cookies.

As the employee opened the register to complete the transaction, police say the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded cash.

"If I'm getting shot there's a possibility I'm gonna die," victim Patrick Barker said. "So I just think the worst case scenario, you know, I'm gonna die."

The suspect then ordered Barker into the back room of the store and ran away.

Barker was shaken, but not harmed.

"I've never seen a gun so I was like, I don't know what to do," he said.

Police describe the suspect as a black male around 25-35 years old, standing about 6'2" and weighing about 210 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
