A clumsy ex-employee attempts a robbery in a Subway in Lévis

BET À DAY

Lévis police officers easily solved a robbery committed Friday evening at a fast food restaurant, while the young suspect, a former employee, returned to the scene of the crime shortly after.

The City of Lévis Police Department (SPVL) was called to the Subway located on President-Kennedy Road at the corner of Aubert Street for a burglary , around 10:30 p.m.

Armed with a knife, the offender allegedly asked the clerk for the money in the petty cash. He then allegedly fled with barely $50, while the employee was not injured.

When the police arrived, he took off on his bicycle. They therefore began their investigative work, viewing the tapes of the surveillance cameras. It was then that the owner of the business identified one of her former employees.

A few minutes later, to everyone's surprise, the individual rode past the establishment on a bicycle. Law enforcement officers, who were still at the scene, identified him and got hold of him.

The 20-year-old suspect was arrested and later released on a promise to appear.
