COHOES - The subs are so good at Subs-ta-Toot that people break down doors to get them.

According to owner Lisa Pucci, at around 5 a.m. on Thursday a neighbor saw someone inside the closed store on Ontario Street.  The neighbor called police who, Pucci claims, tracked down the man Pucci believes robbed her store.

After inspecting the store, Pucci's husband realized the crook took $75, a bag of chips, a soda, some candy bars and made himself a sandwich before exiting, closing the door behind him and walking out.

The money was returned to the shop owners.  And the glass door, which the robber broke in with a cinder block, was repaired by late afternoon.

NewsChannel 13 made several phone calls to the Cohoes Police Department to find out the name of the man who was arrested and the charges.  None of them were returned.
