Police searching for suspect in local sandwich shop armed robbery
Friday, January 24, 2014


COLUMBIA (WACH) – A local sandwich shop on Devine street was robbed shortly before 9:00pm on January 10th.

The suspect is described as a female who is seen on surveillance video pointing a gun at the two workers inside, while making violent threats and demands for money from the register.

The workers complied, and were not physically harmed during the incident.

The suspect is also heard yelling at a male employee to get on the ground.

Columbia Police Department investigators want citizens to play close attention the suspect’s voice. Investigators anticipate that someone will recognize her voice and help identify her.

The suspect is described as a female who was last seen wearing a black ski mask over her face, a black jacket, blue jeans, and bright yellow gloves. She is possibly 5’4”, with a medium to stocky build.

Interim Police Chief Ruben Santiago asks if you have any information about this robbery to call CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
