ST. BERNARD, OH (FOX19) -

St. Bernard police are searching for the person who robbed the Subway restaurant Wednesday.

They say he got away with $284 after handing the Vine Street store clerk a note stating he had a gun on him.

In the 911 call, the employee can be heard telling dispatchers about the note: "He gave it to me and it said, 'I have a gun, I don't want to hurt no one.'"

Lt. Bill Ungruhe says the suspect never showed the clerk a gun, but surveillance cameras caught blurry photos of the suspect and his getaway car nearby.

"The car was evidently staged," said Ungruhe.

The police department is working to enhance the quality of the photos and reviewing surveillance video footage from other area businesses. Ungruhe says participation from the community is key to solving cases like these.

"They are very important. In the past, the suspect would just disappear and we would never know where they went," he said. "Right now I have three or four videos that we're looking at. One of them is from a resident, so it's nice to have that type of input."

Police believe the suspect took off in a grey older model Monte Carlo with damage on the right side of the vehicle. If you have any information about this case, call the St. Bernard Police Department.
