Subway.jpgA notice to all those who eat fresh: SFPD has finally arrested the man who haunts your sandwich place. SFian Damon Coooper apparently couldn’t handle the fluctuating prices of his beloved $5 Footlong and allegedly retaliated, robbing 14 Subways throughout SF since last fall, says SFPD in a statement sent to media Friday.

“Investigators from the Criminal Investigations Unit working together with the Department’s Crime Scene Investigations Unit and Crime Lab developed forensic evidence that led to the identity of the suspect,” says SFPD. The 40-year old San Francisco resident was taken into custody February 7th at his home in the Bayview, (though SFPD only chose to let us know about this a few days ago).

The city has many richer sandwich places and general establishments, so it’s perplexing that someone would stick to Subway robbing and refuse to deviate, even to Togo’s. Many have pointed to Subway’s addictive nature as the problem, though no reports of sandwich addiction have been published. As of this writing, self-professed Subway dieter and large-pants-to-small-pants guru Jared Fogle could not be reached for comment.
