A Moorestown teen was arrested for robbing the Centerton Square Subway at knifepoint, according to police.
Mount Laurel Police took the 17-year-old Moorestown boy into custody on Friday after receiving a tip from a citizen who saw surveillance video of the robbery on the police department’s Facebook page. Police said the tip directly contributed to the teen’s arrest.
The accused entered the Subway around 7 p.m. Oct. 12, a ski mask covering his face, brandished a knife, and demanded cash from the clerk, police said. He made off with approximately $100.
The 17-year-old was remanded to the Burlington County Juvenile Detention Center pending a hearing.
Because he is a minor, police did not release the boy’s name.Mount Laurel Police encourage all residents to “like” the department on Facebook to stay informed of current events and share information.
