VACAVILLE — Police have released a photograph of a man they say is a suspect in an armed robbery at a sandwich shop on Saturday morning.

The robbery took place at 7:50 a.m. at the Subway at 1909 Peabody Road. An employee told police dispatch that a man entered the business, simulated a handgun and demanded money. He left on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, a police press release said.

Police searched the area, but did not find the man. The store camera took the photograph. Police described the suspect as a black man in his 40s, about 6 feet tall with a medium build, wearing dark jeans, a hat with an unknown emblem, sunglasses, black T-shirt and brown jacket.

They ask that anyone with information on the case call Officer Dale Hogg at 449-5200.

    Really??? You title and report on a story about the police department releasing a robbery suspect photograph and you don't show the photo? The only image here is Barry. I hope it wasn't him

    I see the photo of the Subway with the robbery suspect inside. Perhaps you need to upgrade your Apple IIe.

    If every door we passed thru required a full set of finger prints and a DNA sample for entry then we would need a heck of a lot of finger print analysts and DNA criminologists and prison cells. And it doesn't look like the Barry pictured at the end of the article. But maybe he changed his appearance just before the robbery.....

    That's right on Peabody Rd... a straight shot from Fairfield. Sounds like Fairfield thugs are moving into south Vacaville. Maybe with all that construction on Peabody for the train station next to Diamond Jim Spering's property they could put in a checkpoint to keep Fairfield thugs (without hugs) from coming to Vacaville.

    Would it be profiling to say he looks like the kind of guy that would knock off a sandwich shop?

    If you were a policeman, and you saw him separate from the incident, maybe. In this case there might be some power of suggetion wiith the photo and the story. Depending, I might simply call it that, or if you had some belief that heftly guys, or black guys, or some other description guys, were more likely to rob a sandwich shop, I might call it a pre--judge based on your previous beliefs or experience. we may agree on a number of things, but some stuff, maybe not so much... :)

    Let's say you're not a policeman. You're the clerk at this store, and you've never seen the guy before.

    He probably made off with a pocket full of 5's. Daily republic says it took place at 7:50 when the video say 7:38. Sure its a small mistake. I wonder what else i read in the DR that is slightly off from the truth??

    Hey give Barry a break. These thugs are keeping him so busy that he is bound to miss a detail or two. I can only imagine how the cops feel......the have been chasing the same suspect across the country for a couple of decades now. Oh wait....this guy isnt in his twenties. Oops.
