MARIANNA, Fla. (WTXL) - The Marianna Police Department is looking for two suspects who robbed a local Subway and forced employees into a cooler within the restaurant. 

On Thursday at about 3:09 p.m., MPD officers along with the Davie Police Department received a call in reference to an armed robbery in progress at Subway on Lafayette street.

Before officers arrived the suspects fled the scene. A K-9 tracking team was used but they were unable to find the suspects.
