MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The man who attempted to rob a Subway with a fake weapon in Macon will spend the next 10 years behind bars.
38-year-old Michael Easley was sentenced to 25 years Thursday after he pleaded guilty to criminal attempt to commit a felony.
The incident happened back in 2016 at the Subway on Eisenhower Parkway in West Macon.
An employee at the restaurant says Easley walked into the restaurant and demanded money while holding what appeared to be a gun. Easley left the store after the employee refused to give him money.
That employee then followed Easley until deputies arrived.
Deputies found Easley hiding in the closet of an abandoned home on Harris street following a chase. Deputies say they also found a toy gun in the closet.
