"Subway" Job Seeker Submits Application, Robs Passerby, Say Pa. Police


Man Who Had Just Applied For Job At Pa. Subway Robbed Someone Outside

HOMESTEAD, Pa. (CBS/AP) Admittedly it's a tough economy - still, this might not be the best way to get hired.

Police say a man charged with robbing someone outside a Pittsburgh-area Subway restaurant left a pretty detailed calling card: a job application he filled out just before the heist.

Police haven't released the name of the suspect charged in an armed robbery about 5 p.m. Sunday in Homestead.

They used his Subway application to locate his mother, who told them her son was heading by bus to Pittsburgh, where police arrested him.

Think he'll update his resume?
