Lexington Park man arrested for Subway Robbery

On Nov. 1, 2018, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Deputies arrested and charged a suspect in the robbery of the Subway restaurant in California, Maryland.

Christian McFarland Phillips, 35, of Lexington Park was arrested and charged with Armed Robbery, Theft: $100 to under $1,500 and Resist/Interfere with Arrest by Sheriff’s Deputies. Phillips is currently held at the St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Leonardtown.

On Oct. 19, 2018, law enforcement officers from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Subway restaurant at 22630 Three Notch Road in California for the report of a robbery. Two employees stated that an unknown male came into the establishment and indicated that he was in possession of some sort of a weapon. As the employees could not understand what he was saying, the suspect reached over the counter and took cash from the register and then fled the area.

Various investigative tools were employed and Phillips was developed as a suspect. During the investigation, Phillips had an unrelated warrant for his arrest. On Thursday, Nov. 1, deputies made contact with Phillips and informed him of the warrant for his arrest. As Detective Cpl. Melissa Hulse attempted to place his hand behind his back, he pulled away and began to run. After a very brief foot pursuit, the defendant was apprehended.

We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account.
