A former Subway employee was arrested and charged with burglary after hopping the counter and using his old credentials to open the register and steal cash.

On February 20, the Coral Springs Police Department responded to a reported burglary of the Subway located at 710 Riverside Dr. A suspect allegedly stole money from the register and left the store without violence. 

According to the arrest report, once officers arrived on the scene, employees informed them that the suspect was a former employee, identified as Calvin Jerome Eddie, 23, of Margate, and a description was provided. 

The report says a CSPD officer was patrolling the area near the Coral Square Mall at the same time and observed a man that fit Eddie’s description walking near the mall’s west side carrying a clear Subway bag containing rolls of cash.

The officer watched the man enter a vehicle and recline the seat to remove himself from clear view. 

According to the arrest report, the officer conducted a traffic stop and positively identified the man as Eddie, confirming he was the man officers were searching for. 

A subsequent second ‘‘show-up” CSPD patrol car drove by with a Subway employee in the passenger seat who could finger Eddie as the same man that had robbed the store minutes prior. 

The report says Subway employees described to officers how Eddie jumped over the counter into the employee area and, using his old employee combination code, could open the register and remove cash, totaling just over $200. 

The total amount stolen was eventually returned to the store in full after being located in Eddie’s belongings once he was taken into custody. 

Upon reviewing CCTV footage provided by the store manager, witnessed accounts confirmed that Eddie had jumped over the counter, entered an employee combination code to the register, and exited through the front entrance. 

The report says after a full investigation, the Subway store manager told officers he wished to prosecute. 

Eddie was arrested for burglary and transported to CSPD for processing before being taken to the Broward County Main Jail. He was later released on a $5,000 bond.
