Woman arrested in connection with attempted armed robbery of Subway

Charleston police arrested Trainy Michelle Fishburne in connection with the attempted armed robbery of a Subway restaurant.

Charleston police arrested Trainy Michelle Fishburne, 34, in connection with the attempted armed robbery of a Subway restaurant at 13 Magnolia Road on June 28, police spokesman Charles Francis said.

Fishburne, of Kelly Street, was arrested and charged Monday. The North Charleston woman is on probation for a drug charge and is being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center.

The attempted robbery happened about 7:45 p.m. when a man entered the restaurant, asked its owner several suspicious questions and left shortly after, an incident report states.

The business then received three calls from a private number before another man, armed with a handgun, entered and tried unsuccessfully to take money from the cash register.

Fishburne’s cell phone was used to call the restaurant, Francis said, and she is accused of driving a vehicle that was used during the incident.

Police are still searching for two male suspects.
