WEST HOMESTEAD, Pa., Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania said a man who carried out a gunpoint robbery outside a Subway sandwich shop had filled out an application moments earlier.

West Homestead police said the man, whose name was not released, used his real name and address when he filled out an application at the restaurant only moments before carrying out an armed robbery outside the facility Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Wednesday.

Investigators said they went to the man's home and spoke with his mother, who told them he had taken a bus to Pittsburgh.

Police said they arrested the man as he got off the bus.
