Connecticut Man Charged in Subway Shop Robbery in Port Chester

32-year-old convicted felon being held at jail in Bridgeport, CT.

A convicted felon from Connecticut currently on parole has been charged in the Dec. 26, 2012, armed robbery at a Subway sandwich shop in Port Chester, according to Port Chester Police.

Lt. James Ladeairous said John Mcfarlane, 32, of 202 Federal St., Bridgeport, CT, is being held in the Bridgeport Correctional Center on unrelated charges as a result of the investigation of the robbery at 302 Midland Ave. in Port Chester.

Westchester County, according to Ladeairous, is seeking Mcfarlane's extradition from Connecticut to face a charge of first-degree robbery. He is accused of threatening a 22-year-old Subway store clerk with a gun, demanding cash, forcing her to get on the floor and then fleeing with cash from the store. The clerk was not injured.

Ladeairous said an investigation is continuing to determine whether McFarlane is connected with other similar incidents in the New York area. Mcfarlane was released from prison in June 2012 and is on parole. Ladeairous said McFarlane has a "significant criminal history" that includes armed robbery.

Port Chester police ask that anyone with information about the Subway shop robbery call them at 914-939-8419 — with calls kept confidential.

I feel for the people such as this sandwich maker, and the Shell cashier, who have to deal with violent crime - I am confident they are not being paid enough to deal with this kind of activity.
