ONTARIO (CBS) — An Ontario man who allegedly robbed a sandwich shop and took off with an employee’s cell phone was in police custody on Wednesday.

Police responded to a call shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening after a Subway store located at 1118 West Mission Boulevard was robbed. An employee at the store reported that the suspect had also robbed his cell phone.

Police tracked the GPS-enabled phone to an apartment complex near Sultana and Acacia where they found a Mercedes matching a description for the getaway car.

Three people eventually emerged from the residence and one suspect was taken into police custody.
