Deputies investigate sandwich shop robbery
BATON ROUGE - A man in a bandanna robbed a restaurant Monday night, sheriff's deputies said.
The Jimmy John's on Coursey between Airline Highway and Sherwood Forest was hit around 8:30 p.m. The heist came about 90 minutes before the restaurant was scheduled to close - the third such type heist in two weeks.
There was no specific description of the robber. Deputies searched the area around the restaurant.
A spokesperson said the unidentified robber was able to get away with money.
While no one has said they are related, there have been two other robberies of businesses near closing time. One was at a coffee shop in the Bocage area of Baton Rouge. The other was at a dollar store on Old Hammond.
