SUBWAY stores in Statesboro have recently changed their hours on the fringe of a string of robberies that have also recently occurred.

“I can neither confirm nor deny that [SUBWAY has changed hours because of the robberies],” a SUBWAY employee at the Chandler Road location said.

The employee did not want to disclose his or her name because they did not want to become involved.

The manager of the SUBWAY on Highway 301 also did not disclose his or her name but did say that there is a security system in the store that works to keep the establishment as safe as possible for guests.

“We changed our hours to accommodate sales, nothing too specific.  It best suited us to go to these new hours because we don’t really have many sales after midnight,” the manager said.

The most recent robbery took place on Sept. 9 at the Lanier Drive SUBWAY.  At 3 a.m. a subject entered the SUBWAY with a handgun, according to a news release from Statesboro Police Department (SPD).

The offender proceeded to take cash from the register, and an employee’s wallet, cell phone and vehicle keys, according to the press release,

The offender, Reginald Dominique Bradford, was arrested on Sept. 10 by the SPD and was charged with four different crimes, including armed robbery and carrying a concealed weapon.
