BAY COUNTY, Fl - Springfield Police arrest the man they believe to be responsible for robbing a Subway restaurant Friday afternoon.
51 year old Patrick Eugene Spinks was arrested Friday evening after a search of a nearby neighborhood. Spinks faces charges of armed robbery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, fleeing and attempting to elude a police officer.
The incident happened around 1:30pm at the Subway at 3604 E. 15th Street. Police were called to the scene. Bay County Sheriff's Deputies also responded.
