Alabama police have arrested a man connected to multiple Subway robberies who claimed he wanted his money back for not losing weight eating the franchise’s sandwiches. WBRC reports that 18-year-old Zachary Torrence told the detectives after his arrest that he dropped a lot of dollar bills on Subway as a means to emulate “Jared’s diet.”
When Jared Fogle first stepped onto America’s television screens more than 15 years ago, we were all cheering him on for his Subway success. The guy lost a significant amount of weight eating what he claimed was nothing but Subway. Now we know there were other factors to Fogle’s success, like exercise and portion control, but we’re guessing this Alabama man didn’t.
Torrence claimed he had been ordering either a foot-long veggie sub or a six-inch turkey and had not seen the same results. Not sure how long the young man had been practicing the diet, or if he tried pairing it with exercise.
Police arrested Torrence after he was spotted at a Walmart with the orange shoes he was wearing in surveillance videos from previous robberies. He is being charged with one count of first degree robbery with a $250,000 bond.
