A man has confessed to robbing (or attempting to rob, in at least one case) numerous Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts locations around Baltimore, police say.
Officers on Tuesday arrested Antonio Johnson, 46, after receiving a tip that he was in the 2100 block of Maryland Avenue in Old Goucher, incidentally one block north of a Dunkin’ Donuts he’s accused of robbing on Feb. 10. Police believe he visited that location and seven other Dunkin’ Donuts or Subway franchises around the city (one of which he allegedly hit twice), robbing them at gunpoint.
In a release, the department said he “confessed to being involved in the robberies.”
A court records search turned up empty, but police say Johnson has been charged with robbery, assault, theft and handgun-related offenses.
The department and the FBI’s Baltimore Violent Crimes Task Force released surveillance footage this week showing a man on Feb. 7 beginning to rob, but then fleeing a Dunkin’ Donuts near Johns Hopkins Hospital, and stealing cash and cookies during a stick-up at a Subway in Highlandtown four days later.
Authorities said they believed he was responsible for seven other robberies around town, including in Abell, Baltimore Highlands, downtown on Pratt Street, Old Goucher and Penn North.
Johnson may have additional charges pending “for other recent robberies,” police said.
