GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — Authorities say a 34-year-old man accused of robbing a Gwinnett County Subway restaurant earlier this month was captured in Tennessee
According to the Gwinnett County Police Department, the suspect -- later identified as Zachary Miller -- walked into the restaurant on Medlock Bridge Road in unincorporated Norcross around 10:15 a.m. Oct. 9.
Investigators said Miller ordered a sandwich and as he was checking out, climbed over the counter and demanded cash from the register.
"He told me, 'My kids are hungry. They need food, so I need money. Give me money,'" the Subway employee said.
He got about $100 in cash and ran out of the store, police said. Surveillance video showed him return to the counter, grab his sandwich and run away again.
Miller had active warrants out for his arrest in Tennessee and multiple jurisdictions in Georgia, police said.
He is accused of robbing several restaurants in both states.
