A Chattanooga man accused of robbing two Subways was arrested in a Wendy's restroom last Wednesday. Bossie Hale Jr., 24, is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery.
Police said the first robbery occurred at the Subway on Amnicola Highway. Rhonda and Kevin Keaton were inside the restaurant when a man wearing a black hoodie and a red bandana over his face walked in carrying a semi-automatic handgun. He walked up to the register and demanded money, stealing $171.
The second robbery happened at the Subway on Highway 58 approximately an hour and a half later. The business estimated that $241 was stolen. Video surveillance showed a man wearing the exact same clothing from the first robbery.
Hale claims that he was not involved in the incident on Amnicola Highway.
As the robber was leaving the Highway 58 Subway, a witness saw him head into a nearby Wendy's. The witness immediately flagged down a police officer. When the officer went in, Hale came out with his hands up. The money taken in the robberies was found in a trashcan in the bathroom. Also, police said he had hidden the hoodie, the bandana, and the gun in the ceiling tiles above the bathroom stall.
Hale was taken into police custody and bail was set at $75,000.
