WICHITA, KAN. – A man and woman arrested in Wichita after a police chase have been charged with robbing a Subway restaurant, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

An agent’s affidavit filed in the case alleges that on Jan. 28 Johnson ordered two sandwiches at the Subway shop at 343 S. Greenwich in Wichita. When the clerk rang up the order, Johnson refused to pay, pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded money from the register. He left the store and got into a vehicle Holt was driving.

A Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop the couple’s vehicle, but they fled, leading law enforcement officers on a 31-minute chase at speeds up to 100 miles per hour.

Investigators learned Johnson and Holt met about four months ago in Topeka and began a love affair. They traveled together through Kansas and lived in Texas for about a month.

The firearms charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years and a fine up to $250,000. The Wichita Police Department and the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office investigated.
