FOX 8 received this news release from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Wednesday evening:

On Sunday, February 24, 2013, at approximately 6:50PM, a suspect entered the Subway Restaurant at 1201 Jefferson Highway. He ordered a sandwich and as he approached the cash register, the suspect implied he was armed and demanded the money from the register. After receiving the money, the suspect fled the business on foot. No getaway vehicle was seen.

On Saturday, May 4, 2013, at approximately 7:05PM, a suspect entered the same Subway Restaurant at 1201 Jefferson Highway. He ordered a sandwich and as he approached the cash register, the suspect implied he was armed and demanded the money from the register. After receiving the money, the suspect fled on foot. Again, no getaway vehicle was seen. 

In both cases, the suspect was described as a white male, 30 to 40 years of age, 5'8" to 5'10", 140 to 175 pounds. In the most recent case, the suspect was described as having a scar on the left side of his face and missing several teeth. After reviewing the attached surveillance photographs of the suspects in each instance, investigators believe both robberies were committed by the same individual. 

Anyone developing information regarding the identity of this suspect is asked to contact the JPSO Robbery Section at 504 364-5300 or Crimestoppers.
