Subway robbery suspect arrested

Nabbed by Knoxville Police Department

CORBIN — By John L. Ross, Staff Writer

“He came in asking for cookies and left with a drawer full of cash.”

That’s what Subway employee Ashley Perkins said after an armed suspect robbed her at closing time April 17.

Corbin Police responded to the scene, and issued a description of the suspect.

That description turned out to be 43-year-old Charles Vincent Gray, who is listed as residing on Gordon Hill Pike in Corbin.

Knoxville Police said Gray is from Collierville, Tenn., which is outside of Memphis.

According to Corbin Police Major Rob Jones, several tips were called in about the suspect. Police believed he was traveling to the Memphis area.

The entire robbery at the Subway in the Forest Hills Shopping Center in Corbin was captured on surveillance video, according to officers.

Gray was arrested unarmed and without incident Thursday by the Knoxville, Tenn. Police Department. Jones said Gray allegedly told police in Knoxville that he would have attempted to shoot officers had he brought his gun with him. Jones said Gray was arrested while attempting to cash a Western Union check at the Kroger on Chapman Highway in Knoxville.

According to Darrell DeBusk, public information officer with the KPD, Gray allegedly robbed three Subway restaurants in Knoxville as well as a CVS Pharmacy there. He is also suspected in an armed robbery of a Subway restaurant in Sevierville, Tenn.

Gray remains jailed in the Knox County Jail. DeBusk said he faces four counts of aggravated robbery. According to Knox County Detention Facility records, Gray remains jailed under four separate $35,000 bonds.

“This could not have been done without the many tips we were able to pass along to authorities there about his location,” according to Corbin Police. “Thanks to all (who) called with information, it was valuable and appreciated.”

DeBusk said additional charges may be placed by the KPD pending the outcome of their ongoing investigation.

DeBusk said Sevierville Police will likely have charges filed as well. A call to that police department was not returned by press time.

Jones said Corbin Police plan to indict Gray for the armed robbery of the Subway during the May meeting of the Whitley County grand jury. Once he is indicted, Jones said he will be extradited back to Kentucky to stand trial for that crime
