MEDFORD, Ore. — Investigators have solved an armed robbery that transpired at a Medford Subway restaurant in July, according to a statement from the Medford Police Department (MPD).
Just before 9:30 p.m. on July 3, a man entered the Subway at 1600 Delta Waters Road and "brandished a firearm," robbing the restaurant. Despite using a K9, police were unable to track the suspect to his location — although they did discover some of the clothes that he had worn during the the robbery.
According to MPD, "biological evidence located on the clothing" led investigators to 49-year-old Jason Michael Wright, a convicted felon. MPD claims that detectives found additional evidence to link Wright to the crime.
On October 20, an officer spotted Wright in the parking lot of the Albertson's on 11 Ross Lane. The officer arrested Wright without incident.
The gun used by the robbery suspect was never recovered, and MPD said that detectives are continuing to investigate the case.
Wright has been charged with Robbery in the Second Degree and Theft in the Second Degree, with bail set at $250,000.
