Waukesha Subway Robbery Suspect Due in Courtby Gamino Law Offices on 07/19/13
WAUKESHA, WI - A suspect accused of robbing a Waukesha Subway store at gunpoint in March is due in court this week.
A man was charged with armed robbery of a Waukesha Subway in Brookfield on March 13, and of robbing two other Waukesha franchises on March 15 and 16 – another Subway and a Speedway. He is due in court on Friday, July 19. If convicted, he faces up to 95 years in prison.
While this man isn’t the first person to ever rob a store at gunpoint, his actions were unlike any other suspect’s before him. According to reports on the robbery in Brookfield, he dropped a five dollar bill as he was leaving the sandwich shop and said, "Thanks guys, have a good night. By the way, the name is Mike."
Authorities say he stole roughly $230 and cigarettes from the Speedway and around $180 from the Subway in Waukesha. Sanchez was arrested outside his apartment, where officers also discovered drug paraphernalia in his apartment.
It is uncertain as to whether the man will be charged with a drug crime, but the penalties associated with the three Waukesha gunpoint robberies can land him in jail for the rest of his life.
