TRUCKEE, Calif. — Truckee police say they arrested a Flagstaff, Ariz., man after he barricaded the back door of the town’s Subway restaurant this weekend and demanded cash.

Charles Anthony Jackson, 37, is suspected of felony charges of attempted robbery and false imprisonment, Truckee Police Department Sgt. Danny Renfrow said.

Renfrow said Jackson entered the Subway at 11375 Deerfield Drive, in the Crossroads Shopping Center, at about 9 a.m. Saturday and used the bathroom.

“He was upset due to the conditions of the bathroom,” Renfrow added.

Jackson then began yelling. He locked the back door of the business and barricaded it with boxes.

He then said he owned both the building and company, and demanded all the cash from the register, the sergeant said.

The lone attendant escaped, ran to a nearby business and called 911. Police found Jackson at a nearby transient camp, Renfrow said.

“No one was hurt,” he added. “Nothing was taken.”

Jackson remained in jail on Sunday under $100,000 in bond, records state.
