While Jimmy John’s boasts freaky fast service from America’s favorite sandwich delivery guys, once recent delivery in Fenton didn’t go according to plan.
Fenton Police Chief Rick Aro said a Jimmy John’s employee was delivering a sandwich order when the customer stole a gold bracelet from his wrist and fled on foot.
Aro said the employee delivered the sandwich to a customer behind a business on the 3900 block of Owen Road at 6:15 p.m. Oct. 24. After a conversation about the method of payment, the customer reached out to hand money to the employee, then ripped a $300, 14-carat gold bracelet from the employee’s wrist and ran south into some nearby trees, according to the report.
Aro said the Jimmy John’s employee told police that the man was wearing green cargo shorts and hooded sweatshirt. The employee reported the man kept the hood over his head and handkerchief over his face, saying he had a cold.
Officers were unable to locate the suspect, but did find a witness who reported that he saw a man matching the description enter a white Honda and drive away.
Police have no suspects and will continue the investigation.
