A former employee is believed to be one of two people who burglarized Bob’s Sub in Harrison early Friday.

Co-owner Jim Nagle said two people used a hidden emergency key to enter through the back door of the business at 1713 Freeport Road around 5:50 a.m.

The restaurant was closed at the time and no one else was there. A manager discovered what happened when she came in around 9 a.m., Nagle said.

A change box containing about $400 and a deposit bag with $600 were taken. An Amazon Fire tablet used to play music was also taken, he said.

The burglars were out in 10 minutes.

“We think it was definitely somebody that was terminated from here,” Nagle said, noting that the deposit bags are hidden. “They knew where everything was.”

Besides what was taken, there was no damage done to the building.

Nagle said the pair — believed to be a man and a woman — unplugged the store’s security systems as they left, but the video and images captured by the cameras were not affected.

“It’s a poor move by them,” he said.

Harrison police are reviewing the surveillance video as part of their investigation. The department did not immediately release any video or stills, or provide a description of the burglars.

Nagle said the two people tried to cover their faces, but he thinks they can be identified.

The Harrison location has been open for about three years, and Nagle said this was the first such incident there. It is one of five restaurants that he co-owns; other locations are in New Kensington, Frazer, Indiana, Pa., and Downtown Pittsburgh.
