There’s no doubt that Jared Fogle is responsible for a lot of people wanting to eat Subway sandwiches.

While most people probably didn’t expect massive weight loss from snacking at the omnipresent chain, those ads still might have made you think twice about going for a greasy burger instead of a slightly healthier sandwich.

Apparently, alleged Subway robber Zachary Raphael Torrence completely bought into the Jared Diet. He was so disappointed when it didn’t work that he’s claiming a failed Jared Diet as his motive for robbing four Subway franchises in Alabama. 

Police arrested Torrence after a local resident recognized Torrence at a Walmart, having seen surveillance video of one of the robberies on a local police department’s webpage.

How did that citizen recognize Torrence? His bright orange shoes.

Apparenty, Torrence was captured on video wearing the same thing in every robbery, and the shoes evidently made the outfit.

Torrence has apparently admitted to all four robberies in interrogation, and even spelled out his exact motive.

Hueytown Police Chief Chuck Hagler said,

“He told the detectives that he had spent a sum of money trying the Sub Diet, the Jared Diet, and it hadn’t worked for him. And he felt like he should get his money back.” 

Torrence has been charged with one count of first-degree robbery and is currently being held on $250,000 bond.

Whatever Torrence spent on sandwiches for his diet, we’re pretty sure it couldn’t have been worth a $250,000 bond or an arrest record.
