Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Drew Sugars confirmed today that an unidentified suspect tried to rob the Subway store located in Goleta’s Magnolia Shopping Center at 8:45 p.m. last night.

According to Sugars — who is currently gathering additional information from detectives — a male suspect in his late teens or early twenties entered the store, pulled a gun, and demanded cash. Although details are hazy, the clerk reportedly didn’t comply and the suspect left without any money.

Sugars said that a suspect may be in custody, and will release additional information soon.
