Coeur d'Alene police detectives have arrested an 18-year-old Coeur d'Alene man for his role in a May 4 robbery alleged to have occurred at Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches in Coeur d'Alene.
Joshua Reed, a Jimmy John's employee, is now facing a burglary charge for the robbery he reported to police.
Reed, according to police investigators, reported that he was forced by a male suspect back into the Government Way business while taking out the garbage. Reed said the man displayed a handgun and pointed it at him and demanded cash. Reed allegedly told police he complied with the demand, and the suspect then fled the area on foot.
The investigators determined Reed planned the phony robbery and three other individuals assisted him. Those individuals have not been arrested at this time so their names will not be released. Detectives recovered an air soft pistol used in the fake robbery and a bank bag that was taken from the business. Reed was charged with burglary for his role in this theft. CdA Press
