GLENN HEIGHTS - A Subway employee might have to pay back $200 stolen from him at gun-point during the Jan. 12 robbery of Subway on Ovilla Road.
When hearing Jason Bell might have to repay the money, customers and co-workers alike were outraged.

Manager Brian Laffery said he has heard it comes out of employee’s checks “when things like this happen.”

“It shouldn’t [have to be paid back],” he said.

“It’s more of a wait and see right now. That’s [paying the money back] all up in the air. Nobody is for sure just yet.”

Det. Lucas Benson,  Glenn Heights Police Department,  confirmed unless it was formally agreed upon, Bell would have to  pay the store back.

“Other employees have told me that the payment will be disguised as cash or bread shortages charged to me on my check,” said Bell.

Other employees wished to remain anonymous, but have confirmed this has happened to them before as well.

Subway owner Robert Suarez couldn’t  be reached for comment at this time.

Previously, video showing the getaway car was reported to be from Subway security cameras, was actually taken from a nearby Whistle Stop.
