Arrest made in Vernon Subway robbery

Morning Star Staff

There’s been a significant development in a recent robbery at a local restaurant.

On May 24, police officers converged on a Cherryville residence and arrested an individual in relation to a May 23 theft at the Fruit Union Plaza Subway in Vernon.

“Our officers were acting on information they received both from the images on the store video as well as witnesses,” said Gord Molendyk, Vernon RCMP spokesperson.

The suspect was taken into custody at the home without incident.

A lone woman entered the business at about 2 a.m. and demanded money. She then jumped the counter and left the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

The 41-year-old clerk was not injured during the robbery.

Amy Young, 26, with an address out of Salmon Arm, remains in custody.

She will make her next court appearance June 27 and answer to the charge of armed robbery.
