White City Subway gets robbed again — for real
WHITE CITY — White City's Subway restaurant was robbed for the second time in less than two weeks Thursday night — except this time is was for real, police said.
A masked man brandishing a semiautomatic handgun entered the business just after 7 p.m. He ordered the two employees to hand over money, which he stuffed in a clear sandwich bag, Jackson County sheriff's Detective Sgt. Colin Fagan said.
He then fled as a passenger in a getaway car, a light-colored 1980s Honda Civic four-door sedan, and was last seen heading north on Highway 62, Fagan said.
"Obviously a second person was involved," Fagan said. "We are looking for the driver."
No shots were fired, Fagan added.
The business made news Feb. 13 when an employee staged a fake robbery with two of his friends to collect cash.
Police cracked that case by observing faulty acting on the part of the players involved.
"This one Thursday night was not faked," Fagan said.
The suspect was caught on surveillance camera. He has brown hair and blue eyes. He wore a grey homemade ski mask, black hooded sweatshirt, white undershirt, dark jeans and black shoes.
Surveillance images could be made available for media release today, Fagan said.
